VHFA recently completed an assessment of the demographics, housing stock, and affordability challenges of residents in Burlington's downtown and waterfront neighborhoods.
This area experienced a much higher rate of population growth during the past decade than the city as a whole. It's primarily renter population has lower incomes on average, with a third spending more than half of their incomes for housing.
The housing report was prepared for the City of Burlington which was awarded a Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the fall of 2010. The project provides Burlington with a unique opportunity to develop a comprehensive and strategic land use and development plan specifically for the downtown and waterfront areas.
