Frequently Asked Questions

CT Housing Partners created the Workforce Housing Program because of the high demand for affordable housing in Stamford and Connecticut.

This program is designed to accommodate moderate-income families and provides affordable studio, one-, or two-bedroom apartments.

Due to the high demand for Below Market Rate (BMR) and the low supply available, this program is conducted by waitlist.

All workforce housing units abide must by the rules given by each specific building.

Families who meet the income eligibility criteria and pass the background check are eligible for the program.

Maximum income eligibility is listed on the site with the corresponding building.

If you exceed the maximum income, you will be ineligible for the program.

If you currently live in a BMR unit an exceed the income limit you will be given the option to stay and pay Market Rate or you will be asked to move and provide the building you reside in along with CT Housing Partners of your vacate date.
