Housing Projects Update
Town staff will give the select board an update on town-sponsored housing programs that have started or that are planned for the near future at the Monday, Oct. 24 select board meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
These programs include a newly adopted buy-down program for Eastham residents. It will grant $150,000 to lower mortgage costs for new homeowners in exchange for a deed-restriction on the home to keep it affordable, according to information provided by Town Administrator Jacqui Beebe.
The town will also offer rental assistance to people earning 150 percent or less of area median income. Previously, that help was available only to people earning 60 percent or less of area median income, according to Beebe. —K.C. Myers
