The Neighborhood Project is one of 22 proposals contained in Burlington's Housing Action Plan (HAP), adopted by the City Council in October 2015. The overarching goal of The Neighborhood Project is to develop an actionable strategy and toolkit of policies and programs for neighborhood stabilization in near-campus neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Project is a partnership between the City of Burlington, the University of Vermont, Champlain College and Preservation Burlington.

The HAP called for hiring consultants to create the strategy and toolkit of policies and programs and a Request for Proposals was issued in March 2017. Seven (7) proposals were received and following a thorough vetting process, a contract was awarded to Ninigret Partners in August 2017. For more background information on The Neighborhood Project, contract award process, activities to date, current project status and upcoming activities, please go HERE.
