DOH was to be the “lead agency in all matters relating to housing and community development, including policy, development, redevelopment, preservation, maintenance and improvement of housing and neighborhoods.” It inherited housing files dating from the old Connecticut Housing Authority, the Housing Division of the Department of Public Works, and the Department of Community Affairs.In addition, it also contains records from the Department of Community Affairs and its predecessors including correspondence and quarterly reports files from the Bureau of Housing Development, Division of Rental Housing Management, 1958-1966; and maintenance and miscellaneous files pertaining to Elderly Low Income Housing, 1945-1975. The Department of Housing became part of the Department of Economic and Community Development in 1994.
