The New Hampshire Council on Housing Stability was established by Governor Christopher Sununu with Executive Order 2020-22 on November 18, 2020. The Council brings together a broad base of diverse stakeholders for the purposes of creating and implementing a plan to create housing stability for all citizens of the State of New Hampshire.

The Council is charged with developing and monitoring a plan which makes recommendations to address and/or undertake the following:

  • Necessary measures to strengthen New Hampshire’s housing market and to create housing stability for all citizens.
  • Conduct an affordable housing needs assessment in each county to determine the housing deficit.
  • The barriers to affordable housing and what can be done to remove such barriers.
  • The necessary system of care to support individuals and families to obtain and maintain stable housing.
  • Integrate and coordinate a housing stability governance structure across state government and connect to local communities by conducting ongoing needs assessment and strategic planning.
  • Enhance the interoperability of data systems within and across government agencies to inform and monitor program and service access, equity, and quality.
  • Have housing options available throughout citizens’ lifespans, based on the needs and desire people have at different times of their life.
  • Develop a comprehensive update to the State’s plan on homelessness.

This critical work has been undertaken immediately. For the latest updates on progress being made by the Council on Housing Stability, please reference the Resources, Public Announcements and Meeting Materials sections of the website.
