HOUSING UNITS SUPPORTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING

 

By: Julia Singer Bansal, Legislative Analyst II

QUESTION

How many programs does the Department of Housing (DOH) fund or administer that provide, rehabilitate, or create short- or long-term emergency, supportive, or affordable housing? How many beds or units do these programs support? Where are they located?

Other OLR Reports list residential housing programs operated by or under contract with other state agencies:

1. 2014-R-0078 (departments of Developmental Services, Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), and Children and Families (DCF) operated or funded group homes).

2. 2014-R-0195 (Nursing homes receiving funds from the Department of Social Services (DSS)).

3. 2014-R-0197 (Department of Corrections and Judicial Branch residential programs).

SUMMARY

DOH funds or administers numerous programs providing, rehabilitating, or creating short- or long-term emergency, supportive, or affordable housing. DOH provided our office with information on 12 of these programs. They are the:

1. Assisted Living Demonstration Program (363 units);

2. Congregate Housing Program (985);

3. Elderly Rental Assistance Program (1,376 units);

4. Emergency Shelter Program (1,720 beds);

5. Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS Program (298 dormitory-style beds and 215 units, including 3 houses);

6. Moderate Rental Payment In Lieu Of Taxes Program (3,590 units);

7. Privately Owned Rental Housing Tax Abatement Program (6,268 units);

8. Rental Assistance Program (houses 4,032 individuals);

9. Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (houses 7,451 individuals);

10. Section 8 New Construction/Substantial Rehabilitation Program (798 units);

11. State-Assisted Supportive Housing Program (1,178 units); and

12. Transitional Living Program (517 beds and 6 units).

In many cases, DOH is just one of many funding sources for these programs. For example, (1) the Supportive Housing Program is supported by DOH, DCF, DMHAS, DSS, and the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority, among other entities and (2) DOH gives grants under the Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS Program using both federal and state money.

DOH also provided information on housing construction and rehabilitation projects receiving funding under various DOH programs that were contracted for on or after January 1, 2011. Since January 1, 2011, at least 1,175 new housing units have been built with such funding and at least 7,419 additional units either are under construction or received funding commitments.

ASSISTED LIVING DEMONSTRATION (ALD) PROGRAM

The ALD Program provides assisted living services to certain low- and moderate-income seniors living in government-subsidized elderly housing to prevent their premature institutionalization. As part of this program, DOH provides rental subsidies. DOH has the discretion to set the rental subsidy at any percentage of the annual aggregate family income and define income and eligibility for these subsidies.

The ALD Program operates in 10 elderly housing developments — six were existing federally-funded housing projects and four were built specifically for the program (“new construction” housing units).

For each of the six federally-funded ALD Program developments for which DOH provides rental subsidies, Table 1 lists (1) its location, (2) its name, and (3) the number of units receiving subsidies under the program.

CONGREGATE HOUSING PROGRAM

DOH provides grants and loans to developers to construct or rehabilitate existing structures to create congregate housing for low-and moderate-income, frail elderly individuals. DOH also provides an operating subsidy to projects to offset the expense of congregate services for lower-income residents.

A congregate housing complex contains separate living units for residents and provides some housekeeping, personal care, transportation, and at least one meal a day in a common dining room. In certain facilities, residents who need more help can receive assisted living services which include “hands on” personal care, assistance with activities of daily living, nursing, and medical services that enable residents to stay in their apartments instead of moving into a nursing home.

For each congregate housing development for which DOH provides funds, Table 3 lists (1) its location, (2) its name, (3) its address, (4) whether it offers assisted living services, and (5) its total unit count.

ELDERLY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (ERAP)

Through ERAP, DOH provides rental assistance to low-income seniors age 62 and older and individuals with disabilities living in state-funded elderly housing. The amount of rental assistance provided is the difference between the housing development's base rent and 30% of the tenant's adjusted gross income, minus a utility allowance.

For each project in which ERAP tenants resided between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, Table 4 lists (1) its location, (2) its name, (3) its total unit count, (4) the number of units ERAP tenants occupied, and (5) the number of ERAP tenants who were under 62 and had a disability.

HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERSONS WITH HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) PROGRAM

Under HOPWA, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) makes grants to communities, states, and nonprofit organizations for projects benefitting low-income individuals living with HIV/AIDS and their families. DOH is a recipient of such funds and uses them, together with its own funds, to give grants to organizations providing housing to individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.

For each DOH-supported HOPWA program, Table 6 lists (1) its location, (2) its owner, sponsor, or contractor, (3) the population served, and (4) its bed and apartment count.

MODERATE RENTAL PAYMENT IN LIEU OF TAXES (PILOT) PROGRAM

Under this program, DOH provides PILOT grants to towns in which local housing authorities operate state-financed moderate rental housing developments for families. The grant amount is equal to the taxes that would be paid on the property if it was not tax exempt. (This program is currently closed to new applicants.)

For each project for which grants are made under the moderate rental PILOT program, Table 7 lists its (1) location, (2) name, and (3) unit count.

PRIVATELY OWNED RENTAL HOUSING TAX ABATEMENT PROGRAM

Under this program, DOH reimburses towns for property tax abatements offered to certain housing projects. By law, towns can abate property taxes due on certain low and moderate-income housing projects that would otherwise be taxable.

Property owners must use funds saved to (1) reduce rents and improve the housing's quality and design, (2) create a mixed-income environment, or (3) provide related facilities or services. (This program is currently closed to new applicants.)

For each project receiving a tax abatement, Table 8 lists its (1) location, (2) name, and (3) elderly or family unit count.

RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (RAP)

Through RAP, DOH funds rent vouchers for eligible low-income families and individuals. Recipients use the vouchers to rent private-market housing of their choice. Under the program, they pay 40% of their adjusted gross income (or 30% of adjusted gross income if the recipient is elderly or has a disability) toward the private-market rental and DOH pays the remaining rent directly to the landlord. According to DOH, as of June 2014, RAP vouchers help house 4,032 individuals statewide. Because these families and individuals reside in numerous private housing developments throughout the state, we are not able to provide information on the location of the dwellings they occupy.

SECTION 8 HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (HCV) PROGRAM

The Section 8 HCV Program is similar to RAP, the main difference being that Section 8 is federally-funded. HUD contracts with DOH and several other public housing agencies across the state to administer the program in Connecticut. According to DOH, as of June 2014, Section 8 HCV program vouchers help house 7,451 individuals statewide. Because these families and individuals reside in numerous private housing developments throughout the state, we are not able to provide information on the location of the dwellings they occupy.

SECTION 8 NEW CONSTRUCTION/SUBSTANTIAL REHABILITATION PROGRAM (NC/SR)

The Section 8 NC/SR Program (also known as project-based Section 8) provides federally-funded subsidies to landlords to make units in newly constructed, rehabilitated, or existing apartment projects affordable. HUD has not approved subsidies for any additional projects since 1983, but projects approved prior to that time still receive subsidies. DOH acts as a contract administrator, ensuring the subsidized properties provide suitable dwelling units.

For each Section 8 NC/SR project, Table 9 lists its (1) location; (2) owner, sponsor, or contractor; (3) name; (4) population served; and (5) unit count.

STATE-ASSISTED SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROGRAM

DOH provides funding to help develop the state's supportive housing portfolio. Under the Supportive Housing Program, DOH partners with several other state agencies to provide affordable housing and support services to individuals and families affected by psychiatric disabilities and chemical dependency who are homeless or risk homelessness, and to supervised ex-offenders with mental health needs, among others.

For each state-assisted supportive housing project completed since 1995, Table 10 lists its (1) location, (2) name, and (3) total unit count.

TRANSITIONAL LIVING PROGRAM

The Transitional Living Program serves as a bridge to permanent housing for individuals and families after a period of homelessness.
