Rental Subsidy Program

  • The purpose of this program is to assist Branford families who fall into the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) demographic. These families earn too much to qualify for government assistance but are struggling to make ends meet. We have a limited number of subsidies to offer to Branford residents.

    We will grant $200 a month for up to a year, paid directly to the landlord, provided the following:

    • Families must be making over the Federal Poverty Level and therefore not eligible for other benefits;
    • Agree to meet and work with Branford Cares volunteers to look for ways to improve the family’s situation. This must happen within the first six months in order to qualify for the second six months of subsidy;
    • Families must pay their rent regularly, on time;
    • The landlord must agree to receive the monthly subsidy payments from the Branford Counseling Center.

    To apply for this program, contact Mike Randi at the Branford Counseling Center (Social Services Office), 203-488-5404. Be prepared with all relevant financial documentation.
