Dear Select Board Member/Municipal Official,

In 2020 the State of Vermont – Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) – Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) started receiving funding through HUD’s Support Act funding, Recovery Housing Program due to Vermont’s opioid death rate.  It’s a five-year HUD pilot program to help individuals in recovery from substance used disorders (SUD) become safely housed.   ACCD works with various stakeholders and the Agency of Human Services (AHS) each year on an action plan which outlines the use of the funds and allows Vermont to access the funds.  This funding is to support the creation of transitional housing for Vermonters suffering from SUD and safely house them for up to 2 years. 
Annually DHCD must report on the performance outcomes to HUD for the period of (Oct 1 to Sep 30) by October 30.  DHCD staff has completed the 2023 Draft Recovery Housing Program Consolidated Annual Performance Report (RHP-CAPER) in the format required by HUD and it can be found on DHCD’s website on https://accd.vermont.gov/community-development/funding-incentives/vcdp/recovery-housing-program
