First Time Homebuyer Programs in Connecticut

by:

The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority, otherwise known as CHFA, is a self-supporting quasi-public housing agency operating within the State of Connecticut. The agency was established in the year 1969 in an effort to address the concerns regarding the lack or insufficient supply of affordable housing opportunities for Connecticut’s low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

The programs of the CHFA are aimed at the constant realization of its mission which is to "help alleviate the shortage of affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families and persons in Connecticut, and when appropriate, to promote or maintain the economic development of the State through employer-assisted housing efforts."

In line with this mission, the Connecticut Housing Finance Agency has established the Homeownership Program wherein it intends to provide reasonable home loans with below-market interest rates to tenants occupying publicly assisted housing who wish to transition from renting into homeownership.
