CHFA partnered with PolicyMap to create their Impact Map
, an illustration of their investments and results across the state of Connecticut. The interactive tool gives both staff and public users the opportunity to learn about housing and other community characteristics using their own program data alongside data from the census and other public sources—no GIS training required. Reports and analysis can be completed in minutes. Now staff generates on-the-fly, custom reports for the U.S. Congressional Districts, State, Senate and House Districts, Counties, Municipalities and Census Tracts throughout the state. Public users can explore CHFA programs and census data in their community via the housing finance authority’s website as well.
CHFA also used PolicyMap to strengthen their application to the Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF). The HAF is a $9.9 billion federal program to help households who are behind on their mortgages and other housing-related expenses due to the impacts of COVID-19.
