Affordable Housing in Easton

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 80-110% of Easton’s median household income based on Talbot County median income levels published annually by HUD.

The NEW Renovation Program is an opportunity for residents who own and occupy homes as their primary residence in the West End neighborhood of Easton, MD to apply for a grant or low interest loan through the Town of Easton Affordable Housing Fund for approved renovations to improve the Energy Efficiency, Safety and Livability of their home. The West End is defined as an area bordered by Washington Street, Biery Street*, State Rte. 322 and Bay Street, refer to attached map.
