Maine Governor Janet Mills signed two bills into law on April 27 to address Maine’s shortage of affordable housing. LD 2003 eliminates all single-family zoning restrictions, allows accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in all zoning districts, provides support for communities to increase affordable housing, and reduces regulatory barriers to multi-family housing development. LD 201 extends an historic property rehabilitation tax credit, which can help finance affordable housing development. The Maine Affordable Housing Coalition (MAHC), an NLIHC state partner, led advocacy efforts that ultimately helped bring about the passage of both bills.
