Since our founding, EcoDevo has made housing a priority. Building new housing and renovating existing housing takes money and the availability of contractors and skilled workers.
Lack of housing continues to be a concern. Both the City of Stafford and the City of St. John have established landbanks to also work at addressing the problem. In 2019, EcoDevo assisted the Stafford Landbank in applying for grant funding to renovate three houses. The Stafford Landbank was awarded $125,000.
EcoDevo has been working on our current housing initiative since 2018. It’s been a multi-year process to develop the house design, secure funding for construction, and find a contractor to take on the project.
