Rental Housing

for Families and Individuals Seeking Rental Housing

The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) is one of several co-sponsors of a website created by the Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) for individuals and families looking for a home to rent in Connecticut.  

The website offers a free service where landlords list and tenants locate accessible, affordable or market-rate rental housing in the state.  It includes helpful tools for tenants to search by town for the optimal rental home based on their income and family size.  

The website lists the different types of housing that can be searched for, including government subsidized Housing, like Section 8 developments.  It also lists specialized housing designed for seniors and people with disabilities.  

Check out rental properties throughout Connecticut by following the link below:

In addition, CHFA provides a directory of CHFA-Financed and State-Sponsored Housing Portfolio rental units organized by county. (See: Additional Information, below)

Consult the Department of Administrative Services, Section 8, Housing Choice Voucher Program, if you are interested in applying for assistance under that program.
