About Us

A Vital Role

The Partnership for Strong Communities plays a vital role in shaping solutions to affordable housing issues in Connecticut.

A Leader

The Partnership is a leader in policy development, advocacy and research in Connecticut. We produce studies, inform state policymakers and municipal officials, and convene scholars, practitioners, business executives and government leaders at our Hartford-based home, The Lyceum Resource and Conference Center. Our staff speak at conferences across the state, region and nation.

A Convener

The Partnership staffs the statewide HOMEConnecticut, a statewide broad-based Collective Impact initiative of partners working to ensure everyone in Connecticut has access to safe, stable, accessible, and affordable housing in the community of their choice. 

Research, Reports and Forums

The Partnership creates and distributes reports, including annual assessments of Connecticut's housing market. In addition, the Partnership produces an annual series of housing policy forums which explore the connections between affordable housing and various policy issues, such as education, the environment, transportation, healthcare, municipal budgets and more.
