About Us

Elm City Communities

Elm City Communities/Housing Authority of New Haven (ECC/HANH) is the public housing agency serving the City of New Haven. 

We serve over 6,100 families and over 14,000 individuals through our public housing, housing choice voucher and low-income housing tax credit programs.  Through our affordable housing programs, residents pay no more than 30% of their income toward their housing expenses. Families are supported in reaching their life goals through a full array of supportive services that lead to the increased income, entrepreneurism, education attainment, homeownership and more.

Elm City Communities is committed to expanding access to affordable housing services and to ensuring that these services are available in every community. We offer permanent affordable housing; visit the Waitlist Portal for more information.
