About Supportive Housing
Supportive housing is an elaborate way of saying "home" for formerly homeless residents and others, including those with disabilities. A home is where people care about you, where you get support. That's what supportive housing is: permanent, truly affordable homes combined with "support" - caregivers who help residents get jobs, life skills, counseling, medical care - whatever is needed to help them keep their lives on track.
It works! A recent study (McKinney Report) found that more than 85% of supportive housing residents stay housed and remain good neighbors. Supportive housing providers find that, once basic needs are met, residents quickly set about finding permanent jobs.

Cedar Hill Apartments was developed under the Corporation for Supportive Housing's Connecticut Supportive Housing Demonstration program. Financing was provided by the Connecticut Housing Financing Authority, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, the National Equity Fund, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston's Affordable Housing Program through Hudson United Bank.
Applying for Cedar Hill Apartments
Residents of Cedar Hill Apartments pay rent based on 30% of their gross income, all utility costs included. Applicants for the program are required to pass a thorough Screening Process evaluating :
