Celebrating 40 years of commitment to Vermont home buyers and renters

VHFA_40th_annual_reportVHFA turns the big 4-0 today!  On April 11, 1974, the Agency was created by the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Thomas P. Salmon.  Since then, VHFA has:

  • financed low interest rate loans for 28,000 home buyers and 8,500 affordable apartments;
  • created innovative partners, programs and approaches for meeting the evolving needs of Vermont residents; and
  • boosted the greater community's understanding of housing issues through research, collaboration and data sharing.

The agency's staff gathered this morning to celebrate the agency's wide-ranging impact on the Vermont housing landscape and to reflect on the exciting possibilities for the future.
