Falmouth Housing Trust New Project Fund

Falmouth Housing Trust’s New Projects Fund

The New Projects Fund has been established to enable Falmouth Housing Trust to acquire land or existing buildings in a timely manner. Presently, the Town of Falmouth is at 6.5% of its 10% affordable housing goal. When towns are below the 10% threshold, developers can bypass town regulations and, under state regulation, develop housing properties (known as 40B) to suit their own interests without regard for the needs, character, or interests of the town. Falmouth Housing Trust, in collaboration with the Town and other local agencies, works to ensure that local properties are purchased and developed in the Town’s best interest. Our New Projects Fund goal is $750,000 and we have raised over $300,000.

The New Projects Fund will provide the financial leverage necessary for Falmouth Housing Trust to:

  • Quickly respond to opportunities
  • Acquire and develop affordable housing that fits the needs, character, and best interests of Falmouth
  • Help the Town work toward its 10% affordable housing goal
Gerald Flynn House

Gerald Flynn House Improvements

The Trust is seeking $50,000 for renovations.

Falmouth Housing Trust has owned and operated the Gerald Flynn House since 1995. Gerald Flynn, a former President of Falmouth Hospital, made a donation to help purchase this property to house those who have been chronically homeless, many of who struggle with the dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse disorder. It houses 7 residents and a House Manager.
