About Us


50 Years of Investment in Affordable Housing    

Since 1969, CHFA has grown from a small quasi-public organization with $5 million dollars to lend for first-time homebuyer mortgages to an organization that lends $1  billion dollars each year for affordable housing.  All 169 Connecticut towns have benefited from CHFA financing. 

CHFA leverages its financial strength in partnership with public and private investors. The result is that more than 140,000 Connecticut residents have purchased their first homes with a CHFA below-market interest rate mortgage, allowing them to begin building their financial futures.  Additionally, CHFA's investments have built or renovated the affordable multifamily apartments that hundreds of thousands of state residents call home.
