Connecticut rental housing is among nation’s least affordable -  read the full article here....

WTNH recently aired a news story about Connecticut’s elderly/disabled housing that highlights the problems of the policy of mixing these two populations in one community—difficulties and risks for all involved including the elderly residents and their families, for the disabled residents who do not have adequate services, and to the housing authorities who are trying to sustain the affordable housing for future generations with few, if any, additional rental income resources or social service supports. This TV news investigation highlights the problems, the complexity, and the urgency of the situation. You can view Part 1 – Neglected Neighbors here, Part 2 – Neglected Neighbors here, Part 3 - Neglected Neighbors here, Part 4 - Neglected Neighbors here. CONN-NAHRO has been urging our legislature and policy makers to address this issue for many years. We hope that this series will help our legislators and the general public to understand why the need to address this issue is becoming an urgent one—for the safety of all residents that we serve in this type of housing.
