February 2 is VHCC Legislative Day...and we need you!
The Vermont Housing and Conservation Coalition Legislative Day is the day for housing and conservation supporters to champion the projects and values supported by Vermont Housing and Conservation Board funding. Legislators need to hear from YOU – Vermonters doing the work on the ground – about how VHCB-funded projects are helping to solve some of Vermont’s most pressing issues. Together, our partnership with VHCB helps fight homelessness, improves water quality, creates affordable housing, supports downtown development, and promotes rural economic development, including working farms and the forest economy.
Please join us at the State House on Thursday, February 2 to deliver the message that it is important to continue funding VHCB.
To help us prepare, please register for the event by January 26 by emailing Anna at the address below. (You may still attend even if you have not registered.)
