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.

Write to House 802 empowers Vermont housing leaders and allies to write opinion pieces to advocate for policies to increase access to safe, affordable, and decent housing in Vermont. Write to House is open to VAHC members, friends, and allies. Participants do not need previous experience writing opinion pieces but should be willing to write at least one piece.


The Bridges to Housing proposal calls for five linked strategies to address this crisis while decreasing Vermont's reliance on motel-based shelter. This proposal reflects the collective planning efforts of state housing leaders and is signed by many housing organizations across Vermont.
