April Resource Of The Month

Thinking of doing some home repairs this spring?

The Champlain Housing Trust is now offering a $2500 grant toward eligible home repairs. If you’ve been putting off fixing your roof or furnace, now is the time to apply! If the project exceeds $2500, ask about their affordable loans. A family of four can earn up to $71,900 and still qualify!

USDA Rural Development’s Section 504 Home Repair program provides loans to
very-low-income homeowners to repair, improve or modernize their homes or grants
to elderly very-low-income homeowners to remove health and safety hazards.Those 62
and over can get grants of up to $7500!

The Agency of Natural Resources has affordable financing programs to help folks
with failed septic and water supply systems. There are other options for emergency
home repairs and modifications for people with physical disabilities. Ask your
Resource Coordinator to help you navigate the process.
