Throughout 2024: Affordable Housing Development Information Sessions

Genesis has partnered with MaineHousing to guide small-scale developers, community groups, and municipalities around the state to develop project plans and seek funding to build affordable housing.

Last year, the first year of this groundbreaking collaboration with MaineHousing, Genesis staff provided training in person or virtually for eight Maine regions. These information sessions and customized follow-up conversations offered guidance and advice to more than 90 groups and project developers to enhance community capacity to create affordable housing. More than 120 individuals took part in the sessions.

To date, we plan to hold customized information sessions in 2024 in the following communities: Bangor, Belfast, Dover-Foxcroft, Machias, Presque Isle, Sedgwick, and York. As more locations are added, we will post them here.

Genesis relies on the communities who host these meetings to steer attendance and registration.

You are welcome to be in touch with us about organizing a session near you, or to receive project guidance from our team.
