Important Notice as it pertains to the Rental Housing Stabilization Program March 1, 2021
The Vermont Legislature has passed and sent to Governor Scott on 2/24/21 for signature H.138, the 2021 Budget Adjustment Act, which contains an additional $2.8 million dollars to fund the remaining outstanding RHSP payments received in December 2020 which were not paid due to insufficient funds. VSHA anticipates Governor Scott will sign the bill and funds will be released to VSHA. Upon receipt of the funds, VSHA will release the ACH payments to Landlord’s accounts. VSHA anticipates payments by March 15, 2021.
