Ipswich Affordable Housing Partnership

Ipswich Affordable Housing Trust Fund

 

We help make housing affordable.

We help people with affordable housing—help find it, make it affordable, get it built, repair it, and keep it affordable for years to come.

We, the people of the Affordable Housing Partnership and the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, are a group of highly motivated, compassionate citizens who are dedicated to helping individuals and families enjoy housing they can afford. We understand that offering this kind of help also results in a more vibrant and successful community—one with a healthy diversity of incomes and talents, backgrounds and ages. It makes the fabric of the life we share in this unique town richer, stronger and more colorful.

We especially want to help if you grew up here or if you work here. And we do our best to help developers create more of the kind of housing that works for everyone. Because we believe in an Ipswich that works for everyone.
