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. This tool is to be used by the owners of publicly funded housing to report on their progress, challenges and successes in working towards this goal.
The 2018 HART has recently undergone an update aimed at reducing reporting burden and improving data quality. The updated Tool is available below and should be used for reporting FY 2018 data. HART reports should be submitted to Shaun Gilpin at the Department of Housing and Community Development by October 15, 2018. Any questions or concerns should be directed to:
Shaun Gilpin - firstname.lastname@example.org
Any questions about the reporting process should be directed to the same address and a compilation of questions received and corresponding answers will be listed below.
- Q: In the case that a rental property has multiple General Partners who intend to complete the Housing Access Reporting Tool (HART), which Partner should include the metrics on the property in question in their HART Report?
- A: For properties that have multiple General Partners, the units of the property in question should be reported on by the Partner that oversees daily management activities of the property, or as otherwise agreed to by the General Partners.
