February 2022

"Habitat  Nantucket announced the winners of three affordable homes being developed by Habitat on Benjamin Drive in Miacomet Village. The three families were selected in a lottery held on Wednesday, February 2, 2022. The lucky winners were drawn from a pool of 27 qualified applicants for the properties. These 27 qualified families were screened out of 66 applications received by Habitat during the September 15 to November 17, 2021 marketing period.

The lucky winners are Dennis and Shannon Reid, Forrest Bell and Elizah Tripp. The buildings are currently being manufactured off-island and should be delivered in May. The selected families are required to contribute 350 hours of “sweat equity” working on their homes. Fit-out and finish work should take 4-6 months and the new homeowners will move in October-November."

 

March 2021 update:

 

Hello! It has been a challenging year for everyone, especially those
seeking affordable housing on Nantucket. We are thrilled that we have
resumed our construction program and have started building five new homes for ownership over the next two years.

 

The first project is a duplex on Beach Grass Drive (pictures just below) to be followed in late 2021 by three dwellings on Benjamin Drive which will be included on the SHI list towards the Town of Nantucket's affordable housing percentage.

 

A big Thank You to Housing Nantucket, Nantucket Housing Authority, and the Town of Nantucket for making this possible.
