Fair Housing Month
Each April we celebrate the 1968 passage of the Fair Housing Act to raise awareness about housing discrimination and the positive role that inclusive, affordable housing plays in thriving communities. Fair Housing is the right to equal opportunity in housing choice and the right to rent, buy, finance, and live in a home free from discrimination or harassment. Vermont’s Fair Housing Project is coordinating a full array of Fair Housing Month activities so check these out at https://fairhousingmonthvt.org/.
Resources for learning more about fair housing, including connections to municipal planning, are a core component of Vermont’s Housing-Ready Toolbox at www.housingdata.org. For facts and figures related to South Burlington’s residents and its housing stock, check out the South Burlington Affordable Housing Committee’s Resources webpage.
The mission of the South Burlington Affordable Housing Committee is to increase the availability of safe and affordable housing in the City, particularly for households with low and moderate incomes.
