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 by October 31st. An email will be sent out yearly (approx. September 1st) which will contain a link to the development's secured SharePoint site which 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.
Tenant Profile and Waiting List Survey Submission Instructions
The TPS report and Waiting List Survey must be for each development and submitted through a SharePoint site. You must use the forms provided.
To access your SharePoint site, a Microsoft Account is required.
Each team member only needs to create a Microsoft Account once per email address, which can be used for multiple properties.
The steps to set up a Microsoft Account are as follows:
1. Go to www.live.com or login.microsoftonline.com. Click the “Create Account” link.
2. Fill in the information. (Note: The email address that you use as your User Name and the password that you create for your Microsoft Account will also be your User Name and password for your development's SharePoint log-in.)
3. Verify your account via email received from Microsoft. Your account should be activated (after a brief period of time). You then can use your newly created Microsoft Account User Name and password to access your development's TPS and Waiting List Survey in your secured SharePoint site.
