Citizen Lobby Day at the Legislature

The Vermont Housing & Conservation Coalition is hosting its annual Legislative Day at the State House in Montpelier on Friday, February 17, 2023 and you’re invited! CHT is a leader in this coalition that advocates for the State to allocate money to the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board, allowing for more affordable housing to be built, more open space and farms to be conserved, and historical buildings in our downtowns preserved.

This is a chance to speak directly with your lawmakers about why affordable housing is important to you! CHT will be taking a van to Montpelier and back and provide support for you to connect with your own Representatives and/or Senators, leaving at about 7am from Burlington and returning early afternoon. If you’d like to reserve a seat in the van, please email Jack Commo — space is limited. If you are planning on coming down separately we’d love to know that, too, so we can get you a schedule of hearings and events for the day.

  • 7:30 – 9:00 AM – Breakfast in the cafeteria
  • 9:30AM – House recognition of VHCC
  • 7:30 AM – 3:00 PM – VHCC display in the Card Room
