June 22, 2021Acting through the Department of Housing (DOH), the State of Connecticut is developing the UniteCT Program. This $235million program will provide rental and electricity 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 the 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.
The program will financially support households up to 80% of the HUD Area Median Income. Visit https://portal.ct.gov/DOH/DOH/Programs/UniteCT for more information.
