Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition asks housing bond supporters to contact representatives

By: VHFA News on 5/4/2017

The Vermont Senate has passed a bill (S.100) to enact a $35 million housing bond to spur the construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing across the State.  The bill is now in the House with just a few days to go until adjournment.  Recommended in Governor Scott's budget proposal, the housing bond would address a significant need for affordable housing in Vermont, help to alleviate homelessness, house the workforce, and provide expanded homeownership opportunities for Vermonters.  

For these reasons, the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition (VAHC) is urging Vermonters to contact the Vermont Legislature's Sergeant at Arms (802-828-2228) or email House members today indicating the importance of passing the affordable housing bond before the Legislature adjourns.
For more information, please contact Erhard Mahnke, VAHC Coordinator,  at erhardm@vtaffordablehousing.org or check out the following resources:
