Acting through the Department of Housing (DOH), the State of Connecticut is developing the UniteCT Program. This $235 million program will provide rental and utility 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 UniteCT Mobile Van has hit the road in New London County. United Way is proud to have assisted in this process by coordinating the locations the van will visit in the community. For a full and ongoing schedule, including any cancellations, please visit https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/0?cid=ZG9oQGN0Lmdvdg.
The 38-foot truck hosts ten computers and two UniteCT staff members to assist clients in accessing the online application for the rental and utility assistance program. Staff members onsite will be able to guide clients through the application process and provide technical assistance for any clients attending the event.
The Yardi portal is open and accessible through any computer or smartphone by clicking the “apply now” button on the top of this 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. Click here to see a table of all the towns in CT and their Area Median Income, or check out the map below to find your town's AMI. Both the table and the map provide the same information.
