ROCKINGHAM, Vt. – The Windham Windsor Housing Trust has two grant funding opportunities for apartment repair. The Holt Fund awarded $300,000 to the Housing Trust to run the Rockingham Rental Rehabilitation Program. This three-year program is designed to help property owners improve the quality of their rental homes by providing dry, ventilated, lead-safe, and well-maintained apartments to keep residents warm, safe, and healthy.
These funds are available for property owners to easily access today. An overview for this program is at www.homemattershere.org/windham-windsor-housing-trust-awarded-300000-for-rockingham-rental-rehabilitation-program.
In addition, the state of Vermont is funding apartment repairs for up to $30,000 per unit through the Rehousing Recovery Program. The funds are part of the Covid-19 relief package and will be available only to the end of the year. For more information, go to www.homemattershere.org/vt-state-rental-rehab-program.
If you are a tenant, please inform your landlord. If you are a landlord, we look forward to helping you improve your property and the health, comfort, and safety of the people who live there.
