VCDA Spring Conference: Addressing the Vermont Housing Challenge
June 28 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
The Vermont Community Development Association presents a conference focused on Vermont’s housing shortage.
The pandemic has turned what was already a housing shortage into a full-blown crisis. The problem is multifaceted and communities may be grappling with a variety of challenges, each requiring different solutions, from homelessness to the “missing middle.” What are the various types of housing challenges we face in Vermont communities? How are communities around the state approaching these challenges? What are innovative solutions on the horizon? What is needed to accomplish housing goals?
Through a variety of panels and peer-to-peer discussions, this conference will delve into these questions and cover a variety of challenges and strategies, including:
- How towns can use ARPA funds to support housing
- Investing in rehabilitation to bring units back online in regions with an older vacant housing stock
- Promising practices from municipalities implementing Zoning Bylaw Modernization grants to promote housing development
- Making sense of new resources to kickstart housing projects
