Housing Commission Mission
The purpose of the Housing Commission is to recognize, promote, enhance, encourage, and develop a balanced and diverse supply of housing to meet the economic, social, and physical needs of the City of Manchester and its residents. The Commission was created by the Board of Mayor and Alderman in 2022 to ensure the recommendations from the 2021 Affordable Housing Taskforce Report were carried out.
The Manchester Housing Commission is a volunteer, advisory board consisting of five regular members and two alternates. All members are appointed by the Board of Mayor & Alderman and serve three-year terms.
