The town of Aquinnah’s affordable housing committee and the nonprofit Island Housing Trust announced this week that a town-owned parcel on Church street in Aquinnah has been transferred to the trust. The trust will give a ground lease on the parcel to Amera Ignacio who was chosen through the town’s lottery process, under the oversight of the Dukes County Regional Housing Authority. Ms. Ignacio is a longtime resident of Aquinnah and will build her own house as part of the resident homesite program. This is the second collaboration between the trust and the town of Aquinnah involving a resident homesite property.
