Happy Homeownership Month!

Posted by: Leslie Black-Plumeau on 6/11/2014

HighStreetJune is a terrific time to reflect on the importance of homeownership in this country, especially in Vermont where residents are more likely than in most states to own their homes. VHFA is working with local lenders across the state to extend the opportunity to own a home to even more Vermonters through low interest loans from a trusted non-profit source.

“Homeownership Month is a time to reaffirm the important role that ‘home’ plays for our families and the neighborhoods where they live,” said U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan.  “Owning a home has historically been the principal vehicle for Americans to build equity, start businesses, put kids through college, and retire with comfort and dignity.”
