What We Do
At the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition (VAHC), we are committed to ensuring all Vermonters have decent, safe and affordable housing. We are not a housing provider, but rather a coalition of over 90 members who work together to increase access to safe, decent, affordable housing in Vermont. Our primary focus is education, advocacy, and outreach.
Our coalition represents much of Vermont’s affordable housing landscape. This includes non-profit affordable housing developers, community land trusts, housing and homeless advocacy groups, public housing authorities, regional planners, economic service providers, funders, state agencies, and others. VAHC advocates for affordable housing interests and the interests of low-income Vermonters at the state and federal levels.
Throughout its history, VAHC has played a central role in most of the important developments affecting housing policy in Vermont, and is committed to continuing to do so.
Voices of Home is a story sharing project dedicated to promoting the voices of Vermont’s affordable housing residents. The project aims to erase the stigma surrounding affordable housing communities and educate our friends and neighbors about the incredible importance of stable, reasonably priced homes in helping people live fulfilling lives.
