CHFA Success Stories
The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) works
with private developers, other Connecticut agencies, local
Housing Authorities and Connecticut communities to create
affordable housing options that address the needs of
families and individuals with limited financial means.
Physically and economically vulnerable residents like
elders living on fixed incomes, people with disabilities and
people who are at risk of homelessness are particularly
affected by a scarcity in affordable housing. True to its
mission to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing in
Connecticut, CHFA seeks opportunities to facilitate the
creation of housing especially designed for these
populations. In addition, economically vulnerable cities
and towns can often benefit from an increase in market-rate
and affordable housing that supports their commercial and
higher education communities. True to its mission to
promote economic development in Connecticut, CHFA seeks
appropriate opportunities to provide financing for the
redevelopment of urban centers in decline.
