Our Community’s Funding

The Retreat is part of a special demonstration pilot project established through the Office of Policy Management (OPM),
Department of Social Services (DSS), Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA), Department of Economic and Community
Development (DECD) and the Department of Public Health (DPH).

These state agencies along with the Community Renewal Team (CRT) and large financial institutions have come together
to make our assisted living community affordable for lower income seniors. Through a combination of federal low-income housing
tax credits and a special Medicaid waiver passed by the Connecticut State Legislature, our members’ rents and costs of personal
care are subsidized. The subsidy amount available for each member depends on the individual’s personal and financial situation.

To be eligible for an apartment in this special demonstration pilot project, a potential member needs to be approved for the
Connecticut Home Care Program for the Elderly (CHCPE) and be approved for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.

Please call 860-560-CARE (2273) and one of our team members will offer more specifics about our program and help you
through the application process.
