Housing funds: Vermont will receive $9.5M of HOME funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (HOME-ARP).  Vermont Housing & Conservation Board (VHCB) is seeking input about how the funding can be used to address homelessness in Vermont:

  • Development of rental housing units for qualifying populations
  • Development of non-congregate shelters
  • Supportive services 
  • Tenant-based rental assistance
  • Operating costs for nonprofits
  • Capacity building for nonprofits

Provide feedback about how Vermont’s HOME-ARP funding should be utilized. Comments should summarize the views of your organization. Email Ron Rupp
