Vermont Housing & Conservation Board Coronavirus Relief Fund: Vermont’s Statewide Initiative

Affordable Housing    
N/A N/A   
Urban | Suburban | Rural
Partnering with non-profit housing developers and service providers, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (VHCB) developed a proposal to help shelter and create permeant housing for the homeless in response to Covid-19. Legislation in support of the proposal passed in June 2020, and $33 million of federal CARES Act Coronavirus RELIEF FUNDS (CRF) was allocated to VHCB to manage. As a result, 247 units destined to become permanent affordable housing were acquired and/or rehabilitated.
