Carlisle Housing Authority Mission and Strategy Statement
The mission of the Carlisle Housing Authority is to increase the supply of “affordable housing” stock in Carlisle through various direct and indirect initiatives, while preserving the semi-rural character of the Town. Affordable housing is defined as those units that could be purchased or rented by a family with 80% of Carlisle’s median income. The “affordable housing units are primarily targeted to meet the housing needs of Carlisle families and those people connected to Carlisle: Town employees, the elderly, and those of modest means.
To increase the supply of affordable housing units in Carlisle, the Housing Authority will work developers to build affordable units, it will work to rehabilitate existing structures in Town, it will seek to amend the bylaws to encourage more affordable units and it will work with any party interested in assisting the authority in meeting its affordable housing objectives. The Housing Authority is also responsible for administering specific Housing Authority units and affordable housing subsidy programs.
In summary, the overall objective of the Carlisle Housing Authority is to satisfy the affordable housing needs of Carlisle in a cost effective manner, that is fully in compliance with Massachusetts laws and housing objectives.
