Housing

The Vermont Housing & Conservation Board (VHCB) makes grants and loans for the acquisition, rehabilitation and construction of affordable housing by nonprofit housing organizations.

Since 1987, VHCB has contributed to the development of more than 12,500 permanently affordable homes around the state. In addition to addressing the shortage of affordable housing, housing construction and rehabilitation stimulate our economy and provide jobs. 

Affordable housing projects eligible for funding include rental housing, mobile home parks, single-family home ownership opportunities, and service-supported housing for seniors, victims of domestic violence, or persons with physical, developmental, or mental disabilities.
