Limited Equity Cooperative Program


CHFA oversees rental housing developments in Connecticut that are subject to various compliance and reporting standards associated with their funding source. Originally administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), the Limited Equity Cooperative Program was designed to offer deferred or low-interest loans, loans and/or grants to non-profit corporations that develop or own low- to moderate- income housing. Residents must contribute their labor, make a cash contribution, or both, in order to become a cooperative member. Recipients of funds under this program are required to regularly provide CHFA with documentation that demonstrates their compliance with specific financial, insurance, property, tenant and lease requirements.   

The Limited Equity Cooperative Program is subject to relevant state of Connecticut statutory regulations, as well as the provisions of the Loan Documents and/or Assistance Agreement(s), applicable between the owner and CHFA.  All operating expenses must be paid from the carrying charges collected from the residents.

Some of the Compliance Reporting Requirements are as follows:
