Our Mission

Sam Turner Road Affordable HousingThe mission of the Falmouth Housing Trust is to enhance the community of Falmouth by developing and maintaining sustainable, affordable workforce housing.

Who We Are

Organized as a Community Development Corporation, in 1986 the Falmouth Housing Trust, Inc. became an independent 501(c)3 charitable organization that works in conjunction with local agencies and town government to provide housing options for our workforce.

What We Do

The Trust works to develop and maintain affordable workforce housing for low-to-moderate income people — individuals or families living in Falmouth who earn 80% of Area Median Income (AMI) or less.

The Falmouth Housing Trust builds homes for 80% AMI households, as well as for households earning up to 100% and 120% of AMI.

Applicants may be eligible for housing with income at or below 80%, 100% and 120% AMI (see table below), and less than $75,000 in assets.

With an eye toward small, strategic projects, the Trust acquires properties and creates housing to fit into the landscape of the community. This housing is rented or sold to qualifying, working individuals at affordable prices.

FHT works closely with neighbors and the Town of Falmouth to create housing that is supported and accepted by the community through consultation and open dialogue.

Properties are built or renovated to Energy Star standards and include modern conveniences. Typically, house sizes range from two-three bedroom with one-two bathrooms and include an open floor plan. The Odd Fellows Hall rental property consists of four micro-unit apartments. Each project includes a visitable unit.
