Kelly Hamshaw and Daniel Baker, senior lecturer and associate professor in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences department of Community Development and Applied Economics — with the Mobile Home Program, Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity — were awarded a grant to study the urgent needs in Vermont manufactured housing communities impacted by July 2023 flooding.
“As Vermont gets wetter and warmer due to climate change, these rapid research projects will explore innovative ways to protect Vermonters from destructive storms and flooding,” said Taylor Ricketts, Director, Gund Institute for Environment, a co-sponsor of the grants. “We are proud to support these projects, which hold great potential to advance flood preparedness in the Green Mountain State and beyond.”
