The Department of Housing and Community Development annually submits a report on the uses of State and Federal funds exceeding $50,000 awarded or appropriated for housing development and housing assistance and subsidies.
Act 157 directed the Agency to develop recommendations to fill the gap in our housing and infrastructure needs. Over the summer and fall, the Steering Committee and staff reviewed existing programs and statutes, gathered stakeholder input and evaluated the housing and infrastructure needs throughout Vermont.
Executive Order 03-16 "Publicly Funded Housing for the Homeless". This Order establishes a goal to make at least 15% of the housing units that have received state-controlled funding available to Vermonters experiencing homelessness. In order to track progress towards this goal and to identify gaps in the support system needed to successfully house vulnerable Vermonters the Housing Access Reporting Tool was developed.
