Length of time families were homeless prior to being housed thru FSH

Story Behind the Curve

The median time families were homeless prior to being housed through the FSH program has generally trended upward from a low of 4 months in SFY 2016 to a high of 8 months in SFY 2021.  Factors impacting this measure include the lack of available rentals, the high cost of rent, very low incomes, and tenant history.  In SFY 2021, Vermont faced a severe housing shortage driven by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The lack of available units suitable for families has translated into a longer duration of homelessness than seen in previous fiscal years.
