VHCC Legislative Day 2019

February 19 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm

Vermont State House with snow

Join housing and conservation advocates at the Statehouse on February 19 to deliver the message that state funding for the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board (VHCB) is of critical importance to the lives of Vermonters across the state. Legislators need to hear from YOU – Vermonters doing the work on the ground – about how VHCB-funded projects are helping solve some of Vermont’s most pressing issues. Together, our partnership with VHCB fights homelessness, improves water quality, protects our irreplaceable natural heritage, creates affordable housing, supports downtown development, and promotes rural economic development, including on working farms and forests. Learn more and sign up to attend here.
