Most of our homes in the greater Upper Valley region are not built or maintained without our residential contractors and developers. There are multiple challenges these stakeholders can face in meeting the region’s housing need, including sufficient capacity and workforce, as well as training on specific techniques and education on local and state regulatory processes.
We have identified critical actions that we recommend residential contractors and developers review. These do not include all important actions.
Recommended First Landing Areas in the Toolbox:
- Bolster Programs for Safe Homes through Education (Action Area B, Objective 2, Strategy 2)
- Provide Local Programmatic Support and Contractor Training/Education (Action Area C, Objective 2, Strategy 1)
- Build Local Developer Capacity (Action Area E, Objective 1)
