Vermont awards $4.6 million in housing, service grants to nonprofit organizations


ESSEX, Vermont — The state of Vermont has awarded a total of $4.6 million in grants to nonprofit housing programs.

The Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity — part of the Department for Children and Families — says the grants announced Monday will provide emergency shelter and services; operate transitional housing; rapidly get homeless families back into a house and get individuals into permanent housing; and prevent people from becoming homeless.

Officials say they've focused the grants on strategies that have had proven results in communities across the nation.

Strategies include services for people fleeing violence; financial and rent support for those experiencing a housing crisis; landlord-tenant relations and transition housing for youth.
