Who We Are: The Amherst Affordable Housing Coalition was formed in 2018 to contribute to the development of public support for the work of the Amherst Municipal Affordable Housing Trust. It is not a subcommittee of the Housing Trust, but an independent group that undertakes activities, which are outside the structure of Town Government.
Candidate Survey: Three years ago the Amherst Affordable Housing Advocacy Coalition asked all candidates for Town Council to respond to questions about their support for quality, affordable housing in Amherst. This year we again asked candidates to respond to questions. All candidates responded. Their responses are organized into six "blog posts", one for At Large candidates and one each for candidates for Districts 1-5. You can find the links for these below. At the beginning of each blog post you will find the questions they were asked, followed by the candidates' names and their responses.
