The Isle au Haut Community Development Corporation (ICDC) is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization dedicated to building and maintaining a robust year-round population on the island: it currently focuses on providing affordable rental housing and microloan opportunities. Twenty years ago, ICDC built three affordable houses. Year round residents purchased one of the homes from ICDC. In Spring of 2013, it completed construction on two new affordable houses. This project was funded by a public/private partnership with Maine State Housing Authority, There are currently four affordable rental houses owned and managed by ICDC.

Our Mission

ICDC’s mission is to support community and economic development critical to sustaining a vibrant year-round community on one of Maine’s last inhabited un-bridged islands.
