Under the state Group Home Mortgage Finance Program, the
Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA), provides low
interest mortgage financing to create community-based
residential facilities, or “Group Homes,” for persons with
developmental disabilities in Connecticut. The trend
towards community care as the preferred model of housing and
care for persons with disabilities began in the 1980s and
has become an important mode of care in the state today.
CHFA has played an integral role in the provision of
community living arrangements through implementation of mortgage
loan programs financed with
501(c) (3) Tax-Exempt Bonds.
CHFA works closely with the following state agencies that
ensure the responsible delivery of services to people with
developmental disabilities in Group Homes in Connecticut:
CHFA relies on DDS and DSS to approve a Group Home
development proposal as
appropriate and suitable for occupancy by people with developmental
disabilities. In addition, these agencies analyze
whether the state and federal benefits received by residents
to ensure that rents paid will cover the operating
expenses and the debt service of a Group Home.
Current Group Home Initiatives Involving CHFA
Group Home Mortgage Finance Program is ongoing. Group Home
developers interested in this program should contact the DSS
Regional Office in your area for
information on its requisition process with regards to the
establishment of Group Homes expected to be financed by CHFA.
