Affordable Housing Trust



The Affordable Housing Trust is a group of volunteer residents who work to assure that housing options are available to community members at any income level. The Trust undertakes programs and pursues policies that aim to address the community's affordable and fair housing needs. The Trust oversees the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, which is used for its programs. The Trust is assisted by the staff of the Department of Planning & Community Development and receives most of its financial support from the Town's Community Preservation Fund.
