VHFA wins CEDO contract

Posted by: VHFA on 12/21/2009

Vermont Housing Finance Agency was awarded a contract to research and write a report for the City of Burlington.

The city's Community and Economic Development Office (CEDO) picked VHFA's proposal to produce its "Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing." The report, required as a part of Burlington's consolidated planning process, was last published in 1999.

The report will be produced by VHFA Research Analyst Leslie Black-Plumeau and returning University of Pennsylvania's Warton School intern Casey Klyszeiko, under the direction of Policy and Planning Manager Maura Collins.

"It's important to understand local housing regulations' effects on 'protected classes' under Fair Housing law. We hope to look at a considerable amount of housing market research and data for Burlington to identify opportunities for furthering fair housing practices," Maura said.

"It's a great opportunity for VHFA and another example of a growing line of business that's advancing the mission of the Agency.”
