Housing committees can play an important role in community-based approaches to meeting local housing needs. These groups can be formal municipal commissions, resident advocacy groups, or any other local groups that seek to support or change the quality, quantity, affordability and inclusiveness of housing in a community. Similarly, housing committees can document existing housing stock, assess housing gaps and influence local policy, including zoning changes, permitting processes, the creation of Housing Trust Funds, and others. These local committees can also help improve community understanding about the relationships between housing affordability, equity, and economic vibrancy. 

This survey is designed to collect information about existing housing committees in Vermont, identify those wishing to start committees, and to connect you with additional resources to meet your community’s housing needs. The data will be used to expand the online Housing-ready Toolbox (https://www.housingdata.org/toolbox/) with success stories, best practices, and resources for existing and new committees.

The Housing-Ready Toolbox was created through partnership of the CVOEO Fair Housing Project’s Thriving Communities initiative, the Vermont Department of Housing & Community Development, and Vermont Housing Finance Agency.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Shiferaw Gemeda at sgemeda@cvoeo.org
