Fair Housing Analysis

Report cover screen shotAnalysis of Impediments

The State of Vermont Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is a report required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that seeks to identify the various factors that may affect fair housing choice in Vermont and to develop an action plan to overcome them. The AI is conducted every five years in connection with the State's programs funded by HUD.

Business, Agriculture, Cultural and Historic Damage Assessment

Working with local, regional and state-wide organizations, ACCD has developed an online form to ensure consistent and collaborative collection of damages to businesses, agriculture, historic and cultural resources in the event of a major regional or state-wide event.

If you are viewing this page, there is no disaster pending. However, now is the time to prepare to ensure that all is ready in case of an emergency.

Disaster Planning and Response

One lesson learned after Tropical Storm Irene was that the State and our partners in disaster response and recovery needed a consistent way to assess damage and impact to businesses, farms and cultural and historic resources and a centralized location for the information. Such a system would allow for a more collaborative and strategic response and the ability to communicate with those impacted as new assistance programs became available. It would allow us to pinpoint the types of assistance that was needed and ensure that all those impacted were offered support.

Get Involved

Vermont’s tourism industry is a large contributor to the state's revenue, but the success is largely determined by the industry organizations themselves. Visitors constantly experience the Vermont culture from a store clerk to the owner of a bed and breakfast, and everyone in between. General citizens - Vermonters -  can even have a huge impact on the industry as they interact with the visitors, who end up getting to know the people and character of the state. In other words, anyone can get involved in promoting the state.

Vermont Life Magazine

For decades, Vermont Life magazine has helped establish the state's image as an outdoor paradise. Now it also showcases Vermont's creative economy, thriving arts scene, dynamic food culture and extensive recreational offerings! An insider’s guide to the state’s best places to work and play, Vermont Life’s beautiful design, thought provoking articles and world-class photography have made it one of America’s premier regional magazine.
