Help End Child Homelessness by Investing In Housing and Services
All Vermonters deserve safe, stable and affordable housing, especially our children. We are making progress on homelessness, but need to increase state investments. The Alliance supports the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition in securing full, statutory funding for the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (VHCB), $21.8 million for FY'20. Further, we support the Coalition's efforts to increase state rental assistance, housing related financial supports, and supportive services for homeless and at-risk families with children. Lastly, we continue to support a $2/night Occupancy Fee on hotel and motel stays, paid mostly by out-of-state tourists, with the projected $7.2 million in revenues dedicated to housing and homelessness.
