CHFA reports on the demographics of affordable housing developments and waiting list sizes to the Connecticut Legislature each year to demonstrate the effectiveness of state-financed affordable housing programs statewide and the need for additional affordable housing. The Tenant Profile Submission (TPS) and the Waiting List Survey represents the means by which CHFA collects this information.
TPS Reports should include all demographic data related to the occupants of a development as of September 30th of the current year. The type of data required in a TPS includes income, family size, age, ethnic affiliation, head-of-household status and disability status, among others.
The Waiting List Survey is a break-down of those households on the development's Waiting List as of September 30th.
The TPS report and the Waiting List Survey is required annually on/about October 31st. An email reminder of this task will be sent out yearly (approx. mid September). On/about October 1st an invitation which will contain a link to the development's secured SharePoint site. The site will contain the required TPS format report and the Waiting List Survey. If the development has previously submitted a TPS, it will be pre-populated with the most current submission's data to be updated. Note: SharePoint invitations cannot be forwarded to another colleague to access. The sites MUST be shared with another individual by logging in and using the "Share" option that appears in the upper right corner of the site. The individual(s) will then receive their own invitation in order to access the applicable site shared.
