HDF wants to help Connecticut homebuyers purchase a home in the same town where they work. As well as improving your own work-home life balance, LWYW can reduce the impact of downpayment and closing assistance costs through our 0% loans. Also, LWYW stacks with other HDF loan products to provide you with the best deal possible. 

Program loans are funded in partnership with Eversource Energy and the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority.
