DOH Emergency Rental Assistance for Connecticut’s Economy

From the State of Connecticut website, visit https://portal.ct.gov/DOH/DOH/Programs/UniteCT for complete information and to apply. 

Connecticut - Acting through the Department of Housing (DOH), the State of Connecticut is developing the UniteCT Program. This $235million program will provide rental and utility payment assistance to qualified Connecticut households financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The intention of UniteCT is to help stabilize Connecticut’s Rental Housing Market. The Yardi portal is open and accessible through any computer or smartphone by clicking the “apply now” button on the top of this page. Once a tenant or landlord logs in to Yardi there is step by step guidance to complete the application through written explanation and training videos. In the upper right hand corner of each screen of the application there is a question mark (?) that opens video training support as well. Tenants and landlords will work together to complete their sections of the application and track the progress online.  Community stakeholders are working throughout the state to help those who have barriers to internet access and technology by opening their doors, please see the growing map below to find technology locations that are available.

The program will financially support households up to 80% of the HUD Area Median Income. Click here to see a table of all the towns in CT and their Area Median Income, or check out the map on the link provided above/below to find your town's AMI. Both the table and the map provide the same information.

More information about UniteCT will be posted at https://portal.ct.gov/DOH/DOH/Programs/UniteCT as it becomes available. To learn more at this time, please visit the US Department of Treasury at Emergency Rental Assistance Program
