Workforce and Housing

Workforce and Housing

The Mahoosuc region is committed to maintaining a viable, high quality, year-round community. Housing options, living wage jobs, and a strong workforce are key ingredients to a sustainable destination community.

Creating unique tourism workforce and housing solutions that enhance local liveability

Our work is guided by these strategic principles:

  • Leveling out seasonal employment fluctuations will help address workforce instability.
  • Housing solutions require creative, short- and long-term approaches, involving public, private, and philanthropic partners.
  • Building skills and fostering interest in the hospitality and recreation, especially among young people, is vital to long-term success.

Example Projects::

  • Offering trainings to local front-line workers and developing pilot workforce development programs.
  • Convening local municipal leaders to discuss tools available to support housing solutions at the town level – including a local building code review and repair process.
