The Department of Housing (DOH) strengthens and revitalizes communities by promoting affordable housing opportunities. DOH seeks to eliminate homelessness and to catalyze the creation and preservation of quality, affordable housing to meet the needs of all individuals and families statewide to ensure that Connecticut continues to be a great place to live and work.
The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is the state's lead agency responsible for strengthening Connecticut’s competitive position in the rapidly changing, knowledge-based global economy. DECD takes a comprehensive approach to economic development that incorporates community development, transportation, education, and arts and culture.
Capital for Change (C4C) brings over fifty years of local expertise and knowledge to offer a variety of lending, funding and services to benefit low-moderate income communities in Connecticut. As a full service CDFI C4C serves people, nonprofits, businesses and public institutions in need. We champion projects of all kinds with an approach that one size does not fit all, enabling us to create high impact products and programs that increase energy efficiency, nurture small businesses, finance mixed-use developments, increase homeownership, and create affordable housing.
The Housing Development Fund (HDF) facilitates the development of affordable rental and homeownership opportunities. HDF accomplishes this mission through assisting households in becoming and remaining owners of affordable homes, and through financing affordable rental opportunities for low and moderate income households. HDF leverages private investment to make public subsidy dollars work harder to create affordable housing, offering lenders the opportunity to invest in the sustainable ownership of our communities. HDF works with state and local governments to develop innovative housing solutions and to identify qualified homebuyers for affordable housing and homebuyer assistance programs.
