Housing Needs Assessment

The NVCOG creates Housing Needs Assessments (HNA) to assist its member municipalities in better understanding their housing stock by estimating housing gaps and surpluses and household cost burden.

Regional Housing Profile

The NVCOG completed the organization’s first Regional Housing Profile (RHP) in 2022. The Regional Housing Profile compiles data from all 19 communities in the region to create a regional overview of housing trends and provide strategies for improving housing stock and housing affordability. 

Statutory Land Use Referrals

The State of Connecticut mandates that municipalities refer specific proposals to amend and/or establish zoning maps and regulations, subdivision plans, and Plans of Conservation and Development to the regional council of governments for advisory review.
