housing/wages report
VHFA released its "Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Housing and Wages in Vermont" report this morning at a press event in Montpelier's Statehouse.

This 2011 update is the 10th edition of the annual report first published in 2002.

It shows, despite a long-term recession, rental prices have continued to escalate making the gap between Vermonters’ wages and their cost of housing larger. Furthermore, the future of Vermont’s affordable housing is in jeopardy as federal subsidies are set to expire, and pressure grows to reduce national debt by cutting the federal budget.
