Over the past twenty-five years, Litchfield housing prices have increased much faster than median incomes. Litchfield has always been a community affordable to a diverse income population, and well represented by individuals and families or all age ranges. The lack of affordable housing has been especially difficult for young families.The majority of area jobs, including essential services jobs, offer wage and income levels well below that needed to afford housing in our community. The LHT was created to strengthen our community by advocating, facilitating, and developing housing that encourages diversity.
