2015-2020 Vermont Housing Needs Assessment
In 2014, the Department selected the firm Bowen National Research to conduct a Vermont Housing Needs Assessment for the purposes of informing the State’s 5-Year Consolidated Plan for 2015-2019 to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other statewide and county housing and policy decisions. The Consolidated Plan is a requirement of HUD and combines information on four federal entitlement grant programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). Vermont is a recipient of CDBG, HOME, and ESG funds.
In addition to the statewide analysis, Bowen's report included county level housing needs assessments which was made possible through funding provided by Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission, the Vermont Agency of Human Services, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Housing Vermont, the Vermont State Housing Authority, and the NeighborWorks® Alliance of Vermont.
