Gov. Douglas declares April "Fair Housing Month"

Gov. Jim Douglas has declared April "Fair Housing Month" in Vermont.

He signed the proclamation at the beginning of his weekly press conference this afternoon in the governor's ceremonial office at the Statehouse.

VHFA has been a member of the Vermont Fair Housing Council (VFHC) since its inception. The VFHC monitors Vermont's Fair Housing activities, and published the state's Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing report.

Income, purchase price limits revised

We revised our homeownership income and purchase price limits today.

These limits help determine which homebuyers and properties might be eligible for VHFA financing.

Get the full rundown in our press release.

Best wishes, Kris!

VHFA staff gathered in the Board Room this afternoon to say good-bye to Kristina McCormack.

Kris will wrap up her tenure as an Administrative Assistant in the Agency's Homeownership Department tomorrow.

In classic VHFA style, we gave her a sugary sendoff by collectively devouring this layer cake.

New look for VHFA.org

You might notice the front page of VHFA.org is sporting a fresh new look today.

Though it's not a radical change from our previous design, the page represents a shift to a more modern and accessible method of Web design.

The current incarnation of our Web site went live on Sept. 20, 2005. While that's less than four years ago, in "Internet years," similar to "dog years," that's quite a long spell.

New VHFA stationery gets greener

Truth be known, VHFA's stationery has been green for as long as just about anyone can remember. But soon it'll be "green," as in "environmentally-friendly."

Starting with our next print run, VHFA letterhead, envelopes and business cards will be printed using vegetable-based inks on paper stock composed of 100% post-consumer waste (PCW).

Web sites offline today

We expect the Web sites of VHFA — www.vhfa.org, www.vhfa.net and portal.vhfa.net — might be occasionally offline today.

We're doing some work on our Web servers, but hope to keep the down time as short as possible.

Once the work is complete, however, we expect our sites will perform faster and more efficiently.
