VHFA publishes homelessness report

report cover VHFA published its latest issue paper this morning. "Family Homelessness in Vermont" is the fourth in a series of issue papers we began two years ago.

"Family Homelessness in Vermont," written by VHFA Public Affairs Manager John Fairbanks, explores the number of homeless Vermonters, the state of Vermont's shelters, why people are homeless, as well as what Vermonters are doing about the problem and what more we can do.

Correction: Green Building and Design Standards

This morning we revised our "Green Building and Design Standards" document to correct an editing error.

The new version fixes language in Section 6-R3 "Deconstruction and Construction Waste Management" on page 10. This was the only change.

If you downloaded the previous version or received a hardcopy of the same, please destroy it, and download the latest version.

Housing, wages on a national level

For several years, the Vermont Housing Council and Vermont Housing Awareness Campaign has published their annual "Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Housing and Wages in Vermont."

The report examines the gap between what Vermonters tend to earn and what they can expect to pay for housing in the Green Mountain State.

The Center for Housing Policy in Washington, D.C., has published its most recent "Paycheck to Paycheck," a study that tackles the same topic for housing markets across the country.
