State of Vermont Archives: on Welfare & Poverty


Phil Scott: $35 million housing bond for full spectrum of housing

We need direct investment in economic development activities that will produce results. At the core of my proposal is a $35 million housing bond, in partnership with the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board. VHCB will lead an effort to expand housing across the full spectrum--from homeless populations to home ownership for middle-income families.
