YALE-NEW HAVEN CONNECTED
- Yale University is New Haven's largest real estate taxpayer and the biggest contributor to the City budget beside the state. Each year, Yale pays the City more than $10 million in taxes, voluntary payments, and fees - money that helps fund schools, safety, and other citizen services. Yale pays for its own police force, pays the City for fire services, and pays full property taxes on all its commercial properties. The City receives further millions in state PILOT payments because of Yale's academic property.
- Yale University is the largest employer in New Haven, with over 11,000 employees. Yale's spending on payroll and benefits and its purchasing of goods and services make a direct economic impact of more than $1 billion per year in Connecticut.
