of the Greater Seacoast
EDUCATE AND ADVOCATE
We educate and engage the communities we serve on the importance of workforce housing, and advocate on behalf of land-use regulations, planning practices, and development projects, which increase the supply and affordability of housing in the seacoast region.
We created a four-part module video series to teach town officials and residents about workforce housing, and how to address issues that arise when in that conversation.
See the series here.
THE HOUSING RESOURCE GUIDE
The Housing Resource Guide is a resource guide for the community that overviews everything needed to know about the housing market of the seacoast.
Planners, architects, designers, developers, bankers, business leaders, property owners and abutters all come together for two days to cooperatively discuss creative plans for solutions around workforce housing issues for the future of their respective communities so that engaged and creative meaningful conversation and visioning will occur while producing tangible concepts for mixed–use pilot projects that include quality workforce housing.
WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE
The mission of the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast is to ensure the development of a range of housing options are available and affordable to the diverse workforce of the greater seacoast region of New Hampshire and Maine.
We are not a housing developer, but a coalition of advocates and educators. Our strategy is to be a catalyst through creating, sustaining, and nurturing a united coalition of business, government and community groups to accomplish our goals. We educate, advocate, and engage the communities we serve on the importance of diversified, accessible and quality housing for professionals.
An annual celebration that brings advocates and stakeholders together to build relations and learn about the workforce housing issue, while building consensus about the future.
WHO WE SERVE
We serve 54 communities in the greater seacoast region of Maine and New Hampshire from Kennebunkport to Kingston and Arundel to Candia. We work closely with local government, employers and their employees, and every resident, from growing families to young professionals to empty nesters, to employ a strategy that is right for each of the unique communities in our catchment area. We are the voice of these communities, ensuring that affordable and quality housing exists for working professionals at every stage of their lives.
