for Owners and Management Agents
The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) is the
oversight agency for many affordable housing developments in
Connecticut that are obligated to follow the compliance and
reporting rules of the state or federal programs that helped
to finance their acquisition, construction and/or rehabilitation
or help to subsidize their operating costs.
Because affordable housing financing programs often vary
in their compliance and reporting requirements, CHFA has
created the following look-up tools to help Owners and
Management Agents verify the programs used to finance
their housing developments and identify the corresponding
reporting and compliance rules of those programs.

Owners and Management Agents can view the compliance and
reporting requirements associated with their developments'
funding sources and operational subsidies by completing the following three steps:
