The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority has reopened their Temporary Rental Assistance program. New Milford Mayor Pete Bass says the state created the program to respond to housing issues associated with COVID-19. New requests for assistance may now be submitted. In order to determine if families meet qualifications, Threshold Eligibility information may be submitted in one of two ways. A questionnaire can be completed online, or there is a phone number to speak with a representative to walk you through the questionnaire, and submit it live while you are on the phone. www.chfa.org/trhap/ or 1-860-785-311, Monday through Friday, between 8am and 5pm.
