Affordable housing is our number one community challenge.  The lack of secure year-round housing affects us all--year-round and seasonal residents, renters and aspiring homeowners, and town employers and local nonprofits who are short of workers to serve us all.

The Town regularly faces a significant challenge in hiring and retaining our critical employees. It is the lack of stable, suitable housing employees can afford. This initiative aims to connect homeowners who have not considered renting out living space with employees like police officers, teachers, and others in need of adequate housing. It is a novel idea. Thanks to whomever can make it work, to help the Town address our community’s housing crisis.

We can make a difference, but we need your help.

Most Town employees settling on Nantucket must rent before they can afford to own a home of their own. We’re focused on this critical “make-or-break” stage—retaining employees as fellow residents and, eventually, homeowners.
