From Vermont Business Magazine: The Champlain Housing Trust (CHT) Bright Street Housing Cooperative, a new, 40-unit resident-controlled housing development in the Old North End, has been selected for the 2017 Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award from the National Community Development Association (NCDA). The City of Burlington, which sponsored the award, joined six other communities selected to receive the award on behalf of the co-op.
The award will be presented during the NCDA’s Winter Conference on Friday, February 17 in Washington, DC. Burlington representatives from the Burlington Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) will be on hand to receive the award. Burlington’s Congressional Delegation and their staff have been invited to share in this honor.
“One of the primary focuses of this Administration has been on addressing Burlington’s affordable housing crisis,” said Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger. “The City was pleased to support Champlain Housing Trust in the creation of 40 much-needed units that will provide homes for families and individuals from a range of backgrounds and income levels. We are thrilled that the product of this partnership has been recognized by the national Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award.”
