Affordable Housing Trust

The Nantucket Affordable Housing Trust has issued a Request For Proposals seeking properties to put into a year-round rental program (“Neighborhood First”) which will count toward the state-mandated 10% affordability requirement. For years, if you owned land and wanted to see it go to conservation, the Land Bank has been there to provide a fair price and ensure your environmental conservation wishes. Now, there is a program from the Affordable Housing Trust for folks wishing to see their home / property conserve perhaps an even greater resource: our year-round residents. To access the RFP, click here: https://nantucket-ma.gov/bids.aspx?bidID=524.

To learn more, there will be a Public Information Session via Zoom on Thursday, August 27th at 5:30 p.m. Folks wishing to participate in the RFP Public Information Session may do so by registering via this link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rVOsz99-R0u7DUCkAX_pIA
