New report reveals crisis level shortage of affordable housing in Connecticut


A new report released by Quinnipiac University and Urban League of Southern Connecticut reveals a crisis level shortage of affordable housing in Connecticut.

The report examined the impact of affordable housing, health disparities, transportation, immigration and re-entry justice on quality of life for people residing in seven cities in the state.

The findings state that the shortage of affordable housing has reached crisis levels in urban Connecticut, particularly in communities which are attracting younger, more affluent residents who can afford to pay higher rents. This influx also displaces residents who have low incomes or live paycheck-to-paycheck.
