Vermont Housing Improvement Program (VHIP)

The Vermont Housing Improvement Program is on its way! 

Northeast Kingdom Landlords will soon be able to take advantage of up to $30,000 per unit to make new rental units available to those at risk of homelessness by assisting with health/safety repairs and code violations such as electrical, plumbing, water, septic, heating systems, roof, accessibility, and structural repairs. 

In order to participate in this program, Landlords will also be required to:

- Rent at or below HUD Fair Market Rent for 5 years. - Work with Coordinated Entry programs to find tenants for 5 years.

- Contribute funds equaling 20% of the Granted funding prior to receiving distributions.

- Other program requirements may apply.

For more information, or to be placed on the waitlist and receive updates about the status of the program, email rentalrehab@ruraledge.org or call (802) 535-3555 and ask for David DeLuca.
