Overview


Purpose


Approved by 2011The Weston Affordable Housing Trust Fund is a separate legal entity, operated by a Board of Trustees who are appointed by the Selectmen, to work with the Selectmen and other town committees to seize market opportunities and take other initiatives to preserve and increase moderate and low-income housing consistent with the town’s interests and in keeping with the Policies and Preferences for Affordable Housing (PDF) as developed by the Housing Partnership.

Responsibilities


The Trustees are required to advise the Selectmen before making any significant financial commitment, but will be able to acquire property by gift or purchase, borrow funds if necessary, and renovate and lease or sell property for affordable housing without need for a Town Meeting vote for each particular project.

Use of Funds


Any use of Community Preservation Act funds or other Town funds to support the activities of the Affordable Housing Trust will require the approval of a Town Meeting.
