Kuster Tours Heater Landing, Highlights Affordable Housing Initiatives with Lebanon Housing Authority

Lebanon, N.H. — Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) toured the Heater Landing apartment complex, which consists of 44 energy-efficient affordable apartments. During the visit, Kuster met with leadership from Lebanon Housing Authority, the developer, to discuss how this project came together and ways to incentivize more affordable housing developments across New Hampshire. 


“New Hampshire needs nearly 90,000 more housing units by 2040 — if we are going to reach that goal, we need to start developing new projects now,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “From incentivizing developers to invest in affordable housing units to making it easier for these projects to come online, I am proud to fight for affordable housing in Congress. Thank you to the Lebanon Housing Authority for meeting with me today to discuss how Heater Landing can serve as a model for the rest of our state. I look forward to our continued work together to expand our housing stock and help more families call New Hampshire home.”


“As the State of NH seeks to ease the affordable housing shortage that has become a crisis in cities and towns here and across the country, Lebanon Housing Authority and others must continue advocating for the much-needed development funding and related housing subsidies at all levels of government and within the local communities. It is encouraging to know that Congresswoman Kuster is committed to working toward solutions to the affordable housing dilemma affecting so many NH families,” said Ditha Alonso, Executive Director of the Lebanon Housing Authority.


Kuster is a leading advocate for expanding affordable housing access and development in New Hampshire. Her Economic Opportunity Agenda lays out a legislative roadmap to bring more federal resources to New Hampshire to expand housing stock and incentivize developers to prioritize affordable housing. Kuster also supports the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, legislation to increase the number of low-income housing tax credits New Hampshire receives yearly and modify income eligibility requirements.
