Governor Phil Scott, the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Vermont State Housing Authority (VSHA), and the Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) announced $30 million in housing assistance to those affected by COVID-19. The programs utilize federal CARES Act funding to provide relief for those tenants unable to pay rent, landlords suffering from a loss of rent payments, and those lower income homeowners needing assistance in paying the mortgage.
All Housing assistance programs have stopped taking applications as the program funding from the 2020 CARES Act is fully expended. Additional housing assistance programs in 2021 may be initiated based on federal resources. This page will be updated as additional information becomes available about program eligibility.
