Understanding Housing Challenges in the Region 

Housing has been a challenge for many households in New Hampshire for years. The New Hampshire Housing Study prepared by the New Hampshire Housing Commission in 1977 discussed “overpayment” (paying over 25% of a household’s income towards housing) as a housing problem. While much has changed since 1977, in recent years, the housing crisis has been exacerbated due to low inventory, high demand, increasing construction costs, and a shortage of labor and construction materials. Housing has become the center of a statewide conversation. The availability of affordable workforce housing directly impacts economic growth and a region’s ability to attract and retain workers and young families that contribute to the local economy and vibrancy of communities.
