About 4 percent of Vermont's households move out of the state each year, replaced by about the same number of people moving into Vermont, according to a new study of IRS data from the Public Assets Institute. This new data confirms that younger households are the most likely to move, but that those moving out are replaced by about the same number of young households moving into the state.

Most Vermonters using VHFA's home mortgage programs are young, first-time homebuyers. If you or someone you know has recently moved to Vermont and is looking to buy a home, check out the low interest rate options our programs provide or contact us directly for more information.

We have long known that VHFA is a fantastic place to work, and now the secret is out. Vermont Business Magazine named VHFA one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont for 2016

Companies from across the state entered the two-part selection process. The results of an employee survey counted for 75 percent of each nominated company's score. The remaining 25 percent of the score consisted of evaluating each company's workplace policies, practices and demographics. The combined scores placed VHFA firmly among the top "small" companies (with fewer than 150 employees).

Thank you, Vermont Business Magazine!
