The mission of the Easthampton Affordable and Fair Housing Partnership is to support the production and preservation of long-term, quality affordable housing in the City of Easthampton. An advisory committee appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council, the Partnership meets monthly and is staffed by the Planning Department. 

The Housing Partnership serves as a resource to the City on affordable and fair housing matters and can make referrals to resources available for residents. Members also often attend other City meetings and hearings to support affordable housing developments and initiatives. The Partnership works with local officials, non-profit and for-profit developers, and city residents to achieve its affordable housing goals.

Some recent ways that the Housing Partnership has supported affordable housing include:

  • Participating in the update of the 2021 Housing Production Plan
  • Supporting the creation of Easthampton's Emergency Rental Assistance Program, created during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, to help residents pay their rent
  • Advocating for and supporting the School Reuse Request For Proposals for affordable housing; and,
  • Applying for technical support from Citizens’ Housing & Planning Association (CHAPA) to launch the Easthampton Housing Coalition

Future activities of the Partnership include:

  • Recruiting new members
  • Evaluating, making recommendations, and determining support for affordable housing developments currently before City boards; and,
  • Increasing social media presence and educational outreach efforts
