Housing and Conservation Fund
VHCB investments in affordable housing and land conservation are a proven economic development strategy. As part of the Housing and Conservation Coalition, we are urging lawmakers to invest $11M into our communities through VHCB next year. The Governor proposed $6.1M for VHCB, which is a major reduction from the $15M level two years ago. Lawmakers are looking at supplementing the Governor’s recommendation with $5M from the Capital Bill. The House Institutions Committee is finalizing the House version of the Capital Bill now.
