MRV Affordable Housing Talk Series

October 28, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until October 28, 2020


Vermont is facing an affordable housing crisis. This crisis is felt acutely in the Mad River Valley. The lack of affordable housing stock is limiting opportunity and changing the demographics of our community, driving our workforce to live elsewhere. The provision of diverse affordable housing options is a crucial part of keeping our community together and allowing all to find or keep their home in this special place.

Join the MRV Housing Coalition and the Mad River Valley Planning District every Wednesday evening in October (starting September 30th) as we explore the housing deficit in the MRV and learn about solutions from local and national field experts.

The MRV Affordable Housing Talk Series is FREE and will take place virtually.
