Island Housing Trust announced in an email that applications are being accepted for 20 affordable year-round rental units in the Keuhn’s Way area of ​​Tisbury. The email said the final modular home for the site had arrived on the island and rental units would be ready for residents this fall.

The Dukes County Regional Housing Authority is managing the application process and will host two information sessions. The first meeting has already taken place on Zoom. The second meeting was scheduled to be held in person at Keuhn’s Way on Thursday, May 26 at 12 p.m., but housing authority executive director David Vigneault said the session will take place over Zoom due to the recent increase in COVID cases.

The 20 apartments consist of three one-bedroom units, 14 two-bedroom units and three three-bedroom units. These apartments are grouped in groups of four, connected by common terraces.

Applications can be found on the Island Housing Trust website affordable housing and rental section page or through the housing office at bit.ly/39OswCo. Applications can also be picked up at the Housing Authority office at 21 Mechanics St. in Vineyard Haven. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, June 17 at 5 p.m. The housing authority “strongly recommends submitting your application a few weeks in advance, to allow time to complete any items that may be incomplete,” according to the email.

The Island Housing Trust’s director of communications and operations, Breeze Tonnesen, told The Times that an updated registration link will be available on the nonprofit’s social media pages.
