Homes for All: Planning for Affordable, Inclusive Housing — Thursday, June 3rd at 6:30 PM
Where we live matters. It has a huge impact on our opportunities, such as the ease of getting to work, school, healthcare, services, and recreation. When we don’t have access to safe and stable homes, we lose out on these social and economic benefits.
Join the Jericho Affordable Housing Committee and the Fair Housing Project of CVOEO for a community conversation about housing equity and the importance of affordable, inclusive housing. The program includes a presentation on the history and provisions of Federal and Vermont fair housing law and the realities of housing discrimination in Vermont followed by a discussion about community housing needs and how to make change at a local level.
