The Town of Concord continues to make a strong commitment and investment to affordable housing. Concord has met the State’s 10% affordable housing goal (see more here from Mass.gov). The Town, through its Board of Selectmen, has supported many of these developments. Concord has multiple entities which support the development and retention of affordable housing, including the Concord Housing Authority which owns and manages housing for families, seniors and persons with disabilities in Concord, and the Concord Housing Development Corporation (CHDC), a nonprofit housing corporation whose purpose is to investigate and implement alternatives for the provision of affordable housing for persons of low, moderate and middle income and others whose needs may be identified from time to time in the town. Concord’s housing goals are detailed in the 2015 Housing Production Plan. Concord has also voted in 2019 to create the Concord Housing Trust whose primary mission will be to manage funds appropriated or raised for affordable housing. The Town of Concord has developed an infographic sheet to provide an overview of housing issues and housing statistics in Concord that interested Concord residents can use as a resource.
Details on Concord’s affordable housing inventory can be found in the Housing Inventory section of the RHSO website.
