Attention CT: The Homeless Prevention and Response Fund (HPRF) Program Now Accepting Applications!

Application Deadline: Rolling applications accepted.

CSH is issuing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) directed to owners and developers of supportive or affordable housing rental developments who have been awarded funding during a competitive funding round from the Connecticut Department of Housing (“DOH”) or the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (“CHFA”) and are seeking funding for capitalized operating reserves from DOH for supportive housing.  

CSH and DOH are committed to expanding supportive housing opportunities for Connecticut residents, combining safe, decent and affordable housing with the appropriate support services. Supportive housing is an evidence-based, cost-effective intervention that enables vulnerable populations to lead stable, productive lives within the community. 

Under this program, the owner agrees to restrict the occupancy of a designated number of residential units for at least ten (10) years to eligible households identified by DOH (or its contractor) and the local Coordinated Access Network (CAN). The HPRF program is subject to the provisions of CGS § 8-37mm. 

The Application Review Team will evaluate all proposals and notify applicants of the status of their application within 30 days. The application must be completed in its entirety. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Submission: Submit an electronic copy of the application and the attachments in PDF form to CSH by email to CTinfo@csh.org.
