About Twin Pines Housing
Twin Pines Housing Trust (Twin Pines Housing) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit formed in 1990 to develop, own and manage affordable housing in the upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont. Twin Pines Housing currently houses over 1,000 people and owns 500 rental units at 24 sites in Enfield, Hanover and Lebanon, NH and in Hartford, South Royalton and Woodstock, VT. Twin Pines Housing also has 53 shared-equity homeownership properties that are permanently affordable. It provides property management services for approximately three-quarters of its units, with the balance of units managed by others.
Twin Pines Housing has an active development pipeline including three new apartment buildings (under construction in 2021), and renovations of an existing 100-unit apartment complex.
