Who Will Join the WHA?
The Wellfleet Housing Authority (WHA) is seeking residents to run for an open seat on the board. According to a press release sent to the Independent by WHA chair Elaine McIlroy, member Richard Ciotti is stepping down after serving eight years.
The candidates for the five-year position will be on the ballot at the annual town election on April 29. Nomination papers can be taken out at town hall and must be submitted by March 11.
The WHA meets once a month to work with other town committees, including the Local Housing Partnership and the Affordable Housing Trust, to advance housing efforts currently underway, including the Residences at Lawrence Hill and Maurice’s Campground.
The board oversees the Buy Down Program, which provides grants to first time homebuyers, as well as a down payment and closing costs loan program and a rental assistance program. The WHA works with the Homeless Prevention Council (HPC) in Orleans and the Community Development Partnership (CDP) in Orleans, which provide part time housing specialist services to the committee.
Inquiries can be directed to McIlroy at [email protected].
