Help Vermont receive $20 million grant

Vermont has the opportunity to receive a $19.6 million grant to fund activities related to the purchase, rehabilitation, or redevelopment of abandoned or foreclosed upon homes through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development's (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).

To access the funding, the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) has to submit to HUD an application and amendment to Vermont's Consolidated Plan by Dec. 1.
