Community consists of a place and the people who have a relationship with it.

The Coalition is working to establish a MV Housing Bank modeled largely after the MV Land Bank. With median Vineyard real estate sales exceeding $1m, it is becoming harder than ever for working people to afford stable housing.  The affordable housing crisis that has been with us for several decades is intensifying. The coalition is comprised of broad community representation. It’s role is to listen, educate and build Island-wide support for this initiative. The Community Foundation serves as the fiscal sponsor for the Coalition to Create the MV Housing Bank.

Funding will be used to:
• provide the necessary staffing, publicity, legal assistance, and political assistance for the campaign
