CRS holds first Web site focus group


Yesterday, the Center for Rural Studies (CRS) at the University of Vermont held its first focus group to help improve the Vermont Housing Data Web site.

Seven participants joined a handful of group facilitators in exploring and discussing the site during a 90-minute session.

Held on the UVM campus, the group was the first of four to be conducted around the state. Participants receive a $40 gift card, and will be entered in a raffle to win a 4GB iPod nano.

Vermont Housing Data was developed by VHFA and CRS, with support from Vermont's housing community.
