2021 Municipal Housing Factsheets
South Central Region: Affordable Housing Plan
The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) developed individual municipal Affordable Housing Plans (the Plans), with assistance from RKG Associates, Inc., that provided analysis and guidance on how and where each participating municipality can address its housing needs. The Plans are compliant with Connecticut General Statute 8-30j, and adhere to the process outlined in the “Planning for Affordability in Connecticut: Affordable Housing Plan and Process Guidebook” developed by CT Department of Housing and the Regional Plan Association.
Regional Community Survey
The South Central Region, Connecticut: Housing Plan Survey closed on October 31, 2021. The survey results helped RKG Associates identify the perceptions and realities of housing affordability, appropriateness, and challenges within each SCRCOG community. Responses are confidential and allowed SCRCOG to create housing plans that are sensitive to the needs and concerns of all residents.
