by:

The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority, more often referred to as CHFA, is self-supporting quasi-public housing agency that is located in the State of Connecticut. The agency was constituted in the year 1969 in an attempt to address the issues and concerns regarding the prevalent lack or insufficient supply of affordable housing opportunities for Connecticut’s low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

The attempts and initiatives of the CHFA are thoroughly designed to contribute to the 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."
