We Want to Hear From You!
For over 30 years, Addison County Community Trust (ACCT) has been working to provide affordable housing in our community. During that time, our organization has grown, changed, and evolved. To best fulfill our current mission, we are exploring a new name and logo to better represent the work we do.
We invite you to share your thoughts and opinions on how we can most effectively represent ourselves to our community and beyond. Completing our survey only takes 8-12 minutes to complete and would make a world of difference in our efforts. Participants who complete the survey before Monday, September 5, will be entered to win 1 of 2 $100 Visa gift cards!
Thanks so much for helping us become the best organization we can be for Addison County. We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

2022 "Out Of Reach" Report: Housing Wage Continues to Outstrip Average Renter Wage, Especially in Addison County
*Reposted from 350VT*
Vermont's rural nature makes us a beautiful and unique place to live. However, it also makes getting around without a car difficult. Our need to drive, in part, is why 40% of state emissions are from transit. Plus, as many Vermonters know, due to cost, disability status, age, or immigration status, not everyone can drive. This means gas powered cars are harmful to our environment, and for equity. If you want a sustainable and just transportation future, please take this quick survey from 350VT on improving Vermont transit. It takes only 5-10 minutes but really helps form a sustainable transit system accessible for all. If you have experience living in Vermont without a car or with limited transit access, consider joining 350VT for a zoom roundtable August 10th from 7pm-8:30pm. The roundtable is an opportunity to speak with policy leaders about making Vermont's transit system accessible for all.
