Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing Program

The creation of a Town of Easton Affordable Housing Program (EAHP) was first set into motion in 2001 to create moderate-income affordable homes in the Easton area. Legislation was passed by the Mayor and Town Council in 2005 creating the Affordable Housing Fund and the Easton Affordable Housing Board itself. The Board is responsible for overseeing the EAHP, recruiting applicants, and working with the Town Council on recommendations or changes to the program.

The Board currently calculates affordable rates to be 80 to 110% of Easton’s median household income based on Talbot County median income levels published annually by Housing and Urban Development.
