The Heritage Housing Trust
Southern Maine, much like the state and nation, continues to combat the ever-growing problem of affordable housing. Over the last year, this challenge has only been exacerbated by the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; rapid in-migration resulting in further decreases in our already limited housing stock, skyrocketing development costs, and crippling supply shortages. In 2020, Maine was recognized as having the “ninth largest gap between the income of an average renter and the income needed to afford a two-bedroom rental” and our three towns-Arundel, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport-were identified as three out of the five least affordable towns in York County.
With the Heritage Woods project complete, we are ready to shift our vision and begin work on our next neighborhood. Again, funding will be necessary for land acquisition, design, planning, and construction to meet our 25 home goal by 2025. Your financial support will help ensure that individuals and families will have access to homes that align with what they can afford, and our town will remain healthy, vibrant and strong.
As a neighbor and friend- won’t you please consider a generous gift, either a one-time donation OR become a Front Porch Funder – and contribute $5 - $100 monthly - to show our grantors and government funders that there is broad community support for the work we do!
