Report supports existing housing agency structure

Vermont's Commission on Financing and Delivery of Affordable Housing and Conservation has issued its report. Its conclusion: Vermont’s housing delivery system is efficient and produces desirable results that can be a model for other states.

The eight-person commission was created by the Legislature last season to study the work of Vermont's four statewide housing organizations, including VHFA, responsible for funding organizations and individuals who provide or receive affordable housing.

Report: Affordable housing drives local economic growth

According to a new report from the Center for Housing Policy, affordable housing development drives local economic growth.

The report cites National Association of Home Builders estimates that building 100 new Low-Income Housing Tax Credit units for families can lead to the creation of more than 120 jobs during the construction phase.

Furthermore, that activity ripples through the economy, supporting businesses that supply the construction trade as well as retailers, health services, and restaurants where newly employed workers spend their pay.
