The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
The Community Investment Act (CIA) was established through legislation that requires the collection of recording fees for all documents entered into the municipal land records. In 2014, the legislature passed a bill transferring CIA to the CT Department of Housing.
The Connecticut Community Investment Act uses funding derived from the document recording fees collected by town and city clerks across the state. A quarter of all funding goes to the CT Department of Housing to supplement affordable housing activities.Since the transfer of the program, the CT Department of Housing has awarded nearly $2 million to various organizations for the rehabilitation of affordable housing, providing technical assistance, and training.
