Construction costs for 2020-2021 increased by 17.5% which is the largest price spike in 50 years. Market fluctuations for labor and material costs have driven up real estate costs significant. The volatility in building costs is anticipated to continue throughout 2022. We need to get workforce housing across the finish line!

Appreciation for District Three Constituent Services
Executive Councilor Stevens is a fierce advocate for Long Term Care Facilities. She secured strike team services and $80,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funding
“We appreciate your taking the time to visit our Facility and to truly understand the challenges we face in day-to-day operations managing Covid-19. The information you’ve provided about resources available from the State has been most helpful. From our meeting, I believe you understand that we have a long road to recovery and that continued financial support will be essential. We look forward to a public-private sector partnership that will be essential in addressing the statewide workforce crisis.”
Executive Councilor Stevens receives kudos from a constituent.
“I wanted to express my gratitude for your assistance in helping me with my application progress for The Emergency Rental Assistance Program. I appreciate your kindness and taking the time to intervene on my behalf by contacting ERAP, in which I quickly received notification from a case manager that my application has been approved and that my landlord would be receiving payment.
Thank you so much for going above and beyond, the people here in New Hampshire are truly lucky to have you represent us. I appreciate all the work that you are doing to make New Hampshire a great State to live in.”
Executive Councilor Stevens assists a Salem housing community.
“I am writing for the board of Friendship Drive Cooperative, a resident-owned manufactured housing park in Salem. Last month we were told by a city inspector that an on-going electrical issue might lead the town to send the residents of the park notices saying all (44) households would be having their electricity shut down, which would mean they would have to leave their homes and not be able to move back in until the concerns were resolved. This was particularly scary because the supply-chain issues holding up the project are still a factor.
Knowing that this would have disastrous long-term consequences for the people who live here, we called a number of officials and people connected with the project for help. You were one of the first to respond to us and made a number of calls on our behalf. For this we are very grateful.
As it turned out, the city was already aware of the project and agreed that we could stay in our homes throughout the unavoidable delays. The key players from the town, our funders, and the ROC-NH team that provides technical assistance to the cooperative are now working closely with us to bring the project to a swifter close.
Thank you again for your assistance in this crisis.”
Successfully secured funding for Afghan allies settling in New Hampshire
“Councilor Janet Stevens led the effort to secure state funding to support newly arrived Afghans now settling in New Hampshire. The men, women, and families who are arriving were evacuated by U.S. forces in August of 2021, and the state’s two resettlement providers, Ascentria Care Alliance and the International Institute of New England (IINE) are receiving and placing Afghans in homes and apartments in local communities. Councilor Stevens led a bipartisan effort to secure state funding to support housing coordinators in each agency who will find housing for Afghan arrivals and staff in the agencies to complete rental assistance applications for these new arrivals. The funding also supports translation services.
We cannot thank Councilor Stevens enough for her leadership. She researched what we needed, got unanimous and bipartisan support on the Executive Council, and even took the time to meet one of our Afghan clients. She kindly offered to help him as he and others from Afghanistan begin new lives in New Hampshire. Councilor Stevens is very appreciative for what the Afghans did to support our troops, and she sets an example of leadership on this issue for other elected officials in the state.”
