Support projects addressing Affordable Housing in the Monadnock Region. Let’s provide them with the extra resources they need to make their vision happen.
TLC Monadnock’s Pay-It-Forward program provides extra support and resources to campaigns aligned with our 2021 community priorities like AFFORDABLE HOUSING.
We asked and you voted!
Our community helped The Local Crowd (TLC) Monadnock decide which Local Living Economy building blocks to focus on in 2020-2022. The top three Local Living Economy building blocks were affordable housing, farms & food, and living wage jobs & equity.
What’s a Local Living Economy?
A Local Living Economy is an economy that improves our quality of life, meets everyone’s basic needs and creates an engaged citizenry
Direct your funds to our Affordable Housing Pay-It-Forward Program to empower us to recruit and support more businesses, organizations and initiatives fostering this building block in our region.
Who do we hope to recruit and support?
Keene Housing owns or manages over 550 affordable housing units, from homeless shelters to subsidized homes. In addition to providing affordable housing, Keene Housing also offers programs to residents that support employment, financial resilience, and healthy lifestyles — from developing food forests that will provide residents with free organic produce to installing solar panels on units to decrease monthly utility bills. Their Resident Self-Reliance program helps participants reach their goals by providing incentives such as education grants and rent credits.
Southwestern Community Services (SCS) is another organization helping individuals and families find affordable housing in Cheshire and Sullivan counties. Their Housing Stabilization Service Program offers immediate help to individuals and families facing homelessness. They also provide grants to eligible low to moderate-income families so they can afford to make needed home maintenance updates and repairs.
Community members, social service staff, and church representations came together in 1987 to form the Cheshire Housing Trust — a community land trust to address the rising cost of housing in Keene. They currently own 10 properties that offer single rooms and multi-bedroom apartments in Keene, Marlborough, and Hinsdale for low to moderate-income households.
Individual property owners can also boost affordable housing options in our region. New Hampshire Housing offers a Housing Choice Voucher program that subsidizes rents for eligible tenants. New Hampshire Housing also offers financing to affordable housing developers and affordable mortgage loans targeted to homebuyers with incomes up to $126,700: gonewhampshirehousing.com.
