Partnership for Strong Communities (PSC)
 

HousingInConnecticut2016, the Partnership for Strong Communities’ annual assessment of the state's housing situation, is a tale of two realities -- enormous progress in ending homelessness along with the construction of thousands of affordable homes, but also continuing high prices that are burdening hundreds of thousands of households with unaffordable housing costs.  The findings are both stirring and subdued, highlighting nation-leading advances but noting cause for concern. In early 2016, Connecticut became the second state to end veterans’ homelessness. Simultaneous slight improvement in both wage disparity and Connecticut’s state ranking in median monthly housing costs were nevertheless outweighed by an increase in the state’s housing wage and virtually no change in the number of households paying 30% or more of their income for housing.
 
HousingInCT2016 brings together data from a variety of sources - from the Census Bureau, the CT Department of Housing, Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness, the United Way of Connecticut, and others - to paint the picture of housing conditions in the state, focusing on the housing needs of the state's economically vulnerable residents. Click here to read the full report - HousingInCT2016: The Latest Measures of Affordability. A two-page summary - HousingInCT2016: Highlights and Key Facts - is also available.
