NEW Rental Assistance Money - update 2/3/2021

2/3/2021 Update *********** A new program cannot be developed or started until the Legislature authorizes the funding.  This has not happened.  There is a Bill (S.36) which provides for a $10 million allocation, however this bill has not moved beyond House Appropriations in more than a week.  Program administrator, Vermont State Housing Authority, has requested $50 million (out of $200 million) to get the program launched and up and running to assist both landlords and tenants with rental assistance.  Until the program is funded, no money will be forthcoming.

How can you help?  Please contact your Senator and Representative and ask them to move S.36 forward with a $50 million allocation for the Rental Assistance Program.  You can find your Senators and Representatives contact information by clicking the links.

More information about the timing and requirements for this new money will be known in the next few weeks.  Updates will be posted.
