Affordable Housing Waitlist

These households will be notified when marketing begins and will receive an application and information packet. Ultimately there will be a lottery for the final awarding of the affordable units.

Please direct interested households to email the developer’s housing agent at . In the email they should provide their full name, contact information, and make clear they are interested in the Maynard development.
