In March 2015, Governor Shumlin charged the Agency of Human Services with implementing a multi-agency strategy for ending child and family homelessness in Vermont by 2020. AHS has developed a three part strategy endorsed by the Governor and supported by a broad range of community stakeholders, including the homeless Continuum of Care. You can use this Scorecard to follow our progress.
Section A of this strategy emphasizes coordinated local systems for intake, assessment and targeted referral to best-practice interventions.
Section B promotes partnerships to link housing, rental assistance and supportive services for persons who are homeless.
Section C will address the scarcity of deeply-affordable rental housing through targeted construction and rehabilitation over the next five years.
