how we got started

KNSA, Inc. was formed in response to the compelling data that

North Stonington's Median Home Price was $159,400.* In 2000.

TODAY The median home price is is $291,416*

This is more than an 80% cost increase while wages have not increased accordingly.


The income needed to afford the Median Rent of $1,417 is $50,000 to $70,000.

The median income for renters in town is $34,730.

We agree that “Homeownership is transformational, both for individuals and communities. Health outcomes improve, children do better in school, it stabilizes neighborhoods because people are more concerned and more engaged.”
