Homelessness Task Force

City Council is seeking individuals interested in serving on the Homelessness Task Force. The Montpelier City Council created a Homelessness Task Force in August of 2019 as a response to growing concern for our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

The Montpelier Homelessness Task Force is charged with providing the City Council with a report in three months that includes:

  • Creative, collaboratively developed short-term ideas and/or solutions to improve conditions for people experiencing homelessness
  • Policy recommendations and concrete ideas for longer-term structural and systems improvement that the City could implement, along with a preliminary budget and timeline for duration of work and implementation

Ideas and recommendations should be supported by data that includes:

  • Information regarding the scope of homelessness in Montpelier and the needs of people experiencing homelessness in Montpelier
  • The systems currently in place in our region to address homelessness
  • The range of concerns, perceived barriers, and potential solutions identified by the community
  • Existing strategies in other cities or states, recognizing that the location of our city requires solutions that are responsive to our changing seasons

If you are interested in a seat on the Homelessness Task Force, please click the link below to complete and submit the online application. To request a hard copy of the application, contact the City Manager’s Office at 223-9502.
