Thriving Communities initiative seeks local housing info

By: Mia Watson on 1/10/2019

The CVOEO Fair Housing Project, through its Thriving Communities initiative, is creating an online Housing Committee Toolkit, which will include success stories, best practices, and resources for existing local groups and communities who want to learn more about housing committees. The toolkit is intended to stimulate community conversations, local leadership, and policy change to increase inclusive, fair, and affordable housing.

As part of this effort, we are contacting community leaders all over the state to find out more about local housing challenges, what is happening on the ground, and what resources and support are needed to take the next steps. The short survey is intended for municipal officials, and includes questions about the challenges to meeting local housing needs, and whether or not a town has a housing needs assessment, housing trust fund, or housing committee. Other community members are welcome to use the survey to share their thoughts about local barriers to housing affordability.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete this survey, or for sending it along to the appropriate person in your town or region. The deadline to complete the survey deadline is January 18, 2019.


If you have any questions, contact Jess Hyman, CVOEO Fair Housing Project Education and Outreach Coordinator, at 802-660-3456 x 110 or jhyman@cvoeo.org. For more information about the Thriving Communities initiative and the Housing Committee Toolkit, visit www.thrivingcommunitiesvt.org/toolkit
