MacArthur award event photos

Some photos from the press event we held this afternoon to announce Vermont's winning $2.6 million in funding from the MacArthur Foundation.

The event was held at North Branch Apartments in Montpelier and was attended by about 20 people.

Details about the award are in our press release.

Free film screening

VHFA is co-sponsoring a free screening of "Communities & Consequences," an award-winning documentary by Jay Childs.

The film explores the effects of the "graying" demographic of New Hampshire's upper valley, and how an increasingly unbalanced generational mix is affecting life in the state.

It was named "Best New Hampshire Documentary" at the 2008 New Hampshire Film Festival.

Conference survey results

We've just finished tabulating the results of the attendee surveys we received at the end of last week's Vermont Statewide Housing Conference.

The 180 people responding to the survey, just less than half of those who attended, gave the event an overall score of 4/5 stars.

Conference materials online

In the week since we distributed log-in credentials to attendees of the Nov. 18 Statewide Housing Conference, approximately 100 people have logged onto the site to access the attendees database and download presentation files.

The "members-only" area of the conference site contains nearly 180 MB of PowerPoint presentation files, as well as some online-only PDFs provided by conference speakers.
