At the end of June Brattleboro Housing Partnerships will have two vacancies on its Board of  Commissioners.

Applicants apply on the town website and are approved by the Selectboard.


I have attached information about the board as well as goals for the 2022-2027 strategic plan.   

Please contact Jessica Sticklor at the Town Manager’s office or Janet Cramer, Chair of  BHP Board of Commissioners , janetcmft@therapysecure.com for more information.

The BHP’s five member Board of Commissioners is responsible for the overall policy and management of the organization.  All members are appointed by the Brattleboro Select Board and each serves a five-year term. The Brattleboro Housing Partnerships is very fortunate to have a Board which is highly knowledgeable about the many facets of its work. Board members take an active interest in policy development and management issues. After Tropical Storm Irene, Board members were very involved in the decision making around next steps and in volunteering their time to help with the clean up! The Board keeps its focus on the big picture and does not get overly involved in day-to-day matters. This is the mark of an excellent Board that knows its job and is doing it well!

The Board meets once a month in each of BHP’s five public housing developments throughout the year on Monday night at 5:30 p.m. The first item of business is to talk with any residents that are present, if you have a question or concern that you would like to bring to the Board, please attend a meeting! The schedule of meetings is posted in or outside each of the property offices.
