Pathways Affordable Housing Working Group
The Affordable Housing group is working to identify ways that jurisdictions along the Route 1 corridor can strengthen access to stable, affordable housing for residents in our communities. The group is currently tracking federal, state and county level resources to support tenants and homeowners, discussing policy and zoning changes that could expand the stock of affordable units, and exploring ways to bring home ownership counseling and tenant support services to local residents.
Shelter is a basic need for human security. As populations and neighborhoods change, we want to make sure our friends, family, and community remain resilient. You're not alone. Find the housing support and resources you need.
