Our Mission

To enhance the Town of Falmouth, Massachusetts, and the lives of its residents, by developing and maintaining affordable housing for the benefit of persons of low and moderate income within Falmouth and thereby: encourage employers to retain and create job opportunities, particularly for resident young people, and reduce out-migration; and rehabilitate housing and counteract community deterioration.

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.

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.
