Over the last year, affordable housing owners, developers, shelter providers, advocates, and service providers have been meeting regularly discuss how to effectively provide services in support of vulnerable residents. While there are significant challenges facing Vermont’s service delivery system for Vermonters experiencing homelessness, there are also opportunities to realize savings through strategic statewide investment in community-based service delivery and housing retention services. This RFP is intended to identify a consultant who will translate the collective experience of housing and shelter providers into an actionable policy agenda.
