Connecticut Housing Finance Authority
The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) uses PolicyMap’s widget to expedite the distribution of Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and make the grant process more transparent to applicants.
“PolicyMap was the tool that made sense for quick, on-the-fly research...PolicyMap has opened us up to using data more efficiently.”
Jonathan Cabral, manager at CHFA, needed a way to be more transparent about the grant process with LIHTC applicants.
CHFA’s custom PolicyMap widget allows prospective LIHTC applicants to input a project’s address and receive a rating based on CHFA’s analysis of the location. This streamlines the application process for both the applicants and for CHFA because applicants have a better understanding of how CHFA rates projects and can tailor their applications accordingly.
More information about CHFA's use of PolicyMap and LIHTC is available at their website.
