Conn. Agencies Regs. § 8-119kk-2 - Program description

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) The commissioner shall implement a non-entitlement program of rental assistance for elderly persons living in State-assisted rental housing developed, under section 8-112a to 8-119c, inclusive, of the Connecticut General Statutes, that will allow such persons to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing. The commissioner may limit access to the rental assistance program dependent upon the availability of funds. Previous participation in the rental assistance program does not guarantee a grantee the right to participate in the program if a change in the applicant's circumstances occurs, that results in ineligibility, prior to execution of the rental assistance contract. The commissioner may suspend or cancel already existing rental assistance contracts based on lack of funds.
(b) The department shall oversee the program established by section 8-119kk of the Connecticut General Statutes. The grantee shall be responsible for administrative responsibilities of the program established by section 8-119kk of the Connecticut General Statutes, including tenant selection, annual unit inspections, initial and annual reexamination of tenant income and rent adjustments, maintenance of records and other duties as required by the commissioner.
(c) Should a qualified tenant who is receiving a subsidy under the program be otherwise eligible to relocate to another state-assisted rental housing facility that is participating in the program, and choose to do so, the state shall notify the tenant and the grantee that the tenant's certificate will be transferred to that new facility and the qualified tenant will continue to receive rental assistance at the new facility.
