Possible government shutdown and its affect on housing

Posted by: VHFA on April 7, 2011 - 9:19am

With the potential of a shutdown of the federal government looming tomorrow, we've received questions from people wondering what it would mean for VHFA and housing in Vermont.

Regardless of whether or not there's a shutdown, it will be business as usual for VHFA.
