Maine’s Housing Crisis is characterized by a shortage of affordable housing options, a high demand for rental properties, and an increase in housing costs that exceed wage growth. This crisis is exacerbated by a lack of new construction and an aging housing stock that requires costly renovations to meet modern standards. Additionally, homelessness, lack of workforce housing, and housing insecurity are significant issues, with many individuals and families struggling to find stable housing. From rent-burdened tenants to employee recruitment, homelessness and unattainable housing, Maine’s Housing Crisis is an issue that negatively impacts daily life for all Mainers in one way or another.

MEREDA’s 2023 Spring Conference takes a deep dive into Maine’s housing crisis through the lens of a diverse group of speakers who will provide their viewpoints and experiences.
