The Greater Hartford YMCA was the first human service organization to finance through CHEFA. Since then many other human service organizations have used tax-exempt debt issued by CHEFA inlcuding a number of YMCA/YWCA's, adult day care centers, boys & girls clubs, community action agencies, social service agencies and other non-profits providing services to individuals with special needs.

Higher Education

CHEFA's original mission was to provide access to tax-exempt debt for private, non-profit higher education insitutions. Since then our mission has been expanded to include all non-profit education insitutions. CHEFA has financed projects for all but a few of Connecticut's private non-profit higher education institutions, the Connecticut State University System and the UCONN Foundation.

Cultural Institutions

When The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford was looking to build its new theater, it turned to CHEFA for assistance in assessing debt capacity and in the selection of a financing structure. The Bushnell ultimately decided to utilize tax-exempt debt issued through CHEFA for its capital financing need.

CHEFA and its team of financial experts is ready to assist any qualified non-profit theater, museum, or other cultural organization in meeting their capital financing needs.
