Chebeague Island Community Association





CICA is now seeking tenants for its “affordable” house at 226 South Road


Three bedrooms. Available August 1 or September 1. The tenant must be a year-round resident of Chebeague.  The initial lease period will be for one year.


 “Affordability” means that the rent will not cost more than 28 percent of the household’s income.   The tenant pays for the utilities. Any year-round household is eligible that has an income less than 120 percent of the median income for a family of that size in Cumberland County  -- $55,600 for a couple, $69,400 for a family of four.


CICA’s requirements, criteria and application forms are available at the Library and on the CICA Website (go to and click on CICA icon) and at the Town Office.


Applications will be accepted until July 15.  Send them to Beth Howe, 168 South Road, Chebeague Island  ME 04017.  Then a committee of five island people (two CICA Board members and three other island residents) will review the applications and choose a renter. The decision will be made by the end of July.


If you know someone who wants to live on Chebeague year-round but cannot afford the cost of housing, please tell them about this opportunity or put them in touch with us.
