The Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) is now accepting applications from Vermont homeowners who are behind on their housing expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the Vermont Homeowner Assistance Program provides grants for eligible Vermont homeowners for missed payments on their mortgage, utilities (water/sewer, electricity, home heating), property taxes, and homeowner's or condominium association fees.

The program is restricted to expenses related to a homeowner's primary home. (Other eligibility criteria apply.)

If applicants are approved, payments will be made directly to service providers. To learn more and apply, visit vermonthap.vhfa.org or call 833-221-4208, where you can also get housing counseling and translation assistance through local agencies.

A separate rental assistance program is available through the Vermont State Housing Authority.
