Sustained Housing and Conservation Investments

Vermont is about compact settlement surrounded by rural, working lands. A lack of affordable housing and the threat of losing Vermont’s working lands economy unite a unique, statewide coalition of housing and conservation interests. Under Necrason Group’s leadership, they’ve been awarded over $500 million through the competitive state budgeting process to help build and preserve strong and vibrant communities.


  • Creation of more than 15,000 permanently affordable homes
  • Protection of over 600 working farms and 70 historic properties
  • Conservation of more than 400,000 acres of natural, forest, and recreational areas  

Working with our clients, Necrason Group accomplished the following:

  • Passage of a special $30 million affordable housing bond
  • Sustained public investment for regional planning efforts
  • Allocation of tax incentives to stimulate private investment, create jobs, and restore historic buildings in our fragile downtowns and village centers
  • Major investment in legacy land conservation projects
