Affordable Housing Plan

Housing Project

The City of Hartford’s Draft Affordable Housing Plan is a five-year strategy document that outlines the City’s current efforts related to housing affordability; assesses the city’s housing needs, opportunities, and challenges; and finally, sets a vision, goals, and specific actions related to housing affordability for the next five years.   

This Affordable Housing Plan was developed in part to address recent State legislation mandating the preparation of a municipal affordable plan (CGS Section 8-30j) and in part to address Hartford’s local context as it relates to affordable housing needs and challenges.
