Thanks to VHFA housing credits and other funding sources, the historic Darling Inn, a perpetually affordable apartment building in Lyndonville, reopened its doors this weekend with much celebration.  Executive Director, Sarah Carpenter, joined Senator Patrick Leahy and other partners at Saturday’s ribbon cutting.

The building is home to 27 low-income senior households who will now enjoy energy efficiency and physical accessibility improvements. The Darling Inn is managed by RuralEdge, a rural housing nonprofit organization based in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
