Elderly Rental Assistance Program
How Can You Help?
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.
Elderly residents (62 years and over) or persons with disabilities are eligible for rental assistance through the Elderly Rental Assistance Program if they live in state-subsidized housing. The housing in this program is part of Connecticut’s public housing program, for which the state funded the initial construction costs. Individual tenants are eligible if they currently pay over 30% of their income towards rent. The ERAP program pays the difference between 30% of the tenant’s income and the unit’s actual base rent. 1,344 households were served in FY2013-2014.
The program is state-funded with funding from the State General Fund. The program is allocated $2.3 million annually.
