VPR covers CHT honor

Vermont Public Radio aired a story today about Champlain Housing Trust's winning a United Nations World Habitat Award.

Read the script or listen to the story.

Sue Joachim marks 25 years

Punch and cake were in order this afternoon, when VHFA recognized Lender Accounting Coordinator Sue Joachim for her 25 years with the Agency.

Sue joined VHFA when the Finance Department was a mere three people. (It's seven now.) Computers were non-existent at the Agency. Instead, upon her arrival, she was issued an adding machine, #2 pencil and a paper ledger.

Oh, how times have changed ...

More kudos for Champlain Housing Trust

We thought Champlain Housing Trust's winning an international award from the United Nations's UN HABITAT earlier this week was pretty big news. (Read our previous post about the award.) Apparently, we weren't the only ones.

The Burlington Free Press writes in an editorial published this morning, the award "is a timely recognition of a worthy effort when affordable housing is such a critical issue in Vermont."

Champlain Housing Trust wins World Habitat Award

Champlain Housing Trust (CHT) has received a World Habitat Award from UN HABITAT.

The United Nations agency, whose goal is to promote shelter for people worldwide, will present CHT officials with the award at its World Habitat Day event, Oct. 6 in Luanda, Angola.

UN HABITAT presents two such awards a year — one in the northern hemisphere and another in the southern — to recognize "practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems."
