The Campaign for Affordable Housing
HOMEConnecticut is a statewide campaign aimed at increasing the stock of affordable housing in Connecticut. Housing affordability is a crucial element in the state’s efforts to remain economically competitive and preserve the quality of life that has drawn population and businesses to the state. The ability of the state to attract the workers, young professionals and investment necessary to provide jobs and revenues is clearly dependent on its ability to provide the range of housing opportunities and choices needed by the full spectrum of its citizens.
The HOMEConnecticut Campaign is staffed by the Partnership for Strong Communities.
Windham has Approved Incentive Housing Overlay Zones.

Connecticut Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) is an innovative program that is helping commercial, industrial and multi-family property owners access affordable, long-term financing for smart energy upgrades to their buildings.
C-PACE allows building owners to finance qualifying energy efficiency and clean energy improvements through a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill. Property owners pay for the improvements over time through this additional charge on their property tax bill, and the repayment obligation transfers automatically to the next owner if the property is sold. Capital provided under the C-PACE program is secured by a lien on the property, so low-interest capital can be raised from the private sector.
