The Jericho Affordable Housing Committee was established by the Selectboard in November of this year with a mission to increase the availability of affordable housing in order to support a more diverse, vibrant and inclusive community by lowering economic, racial and social barriers to living in Jericho.

What will the Jericho Affordable Housing Committee do?

  • Collect relevant data to inform decision making by the Planning Commission and Selectboard (Potentially through a formal Housing Needs Assessment).
  • Fundraise sufficient money through donations, grants and other means to assist with the development of affordable housing options.
  • Serve in an advisory capacity to the Town regulatory bodies (e.g. Selectboard, Development Review Board) and other Town commissions (e.g. conservation commission, planning commission).
  • Work with local, state, and regional entities to obtain funding and promote a favorable climate for affordable housing.
  • Educate the public on the affordable housing needs and opportunities in Jericho.
  • Advocate for affordable housing on the local and state level.

We're Seeking One New Member

The Selectboard just appointed six founding members for 1, 2 or 3 year terms. We are looking for one more member.
