The Vermont State Housing Authority has been in the business of providing critical housing assistance in Vermont for more than 50 years.

Our mission is, “to ensure that quality affordable housing opportunities are available to Vermonters statewide”. And we believe that we can accomplish this mission through our vision to “continually adapt to evolving needs, steadily increase the supply of affordable housing in partnership with others, lead in housing policy, and attract and retain a skilled workforce”.

Established in 1968, VSHA has the distinction of being the first statewide housing authority in the nation.  Throughout our history, we have aggressively and compassionately pursued opportunities to provide and make housing more accessible and affordable for Vermonters.  Today, we serve more than 8500 families and are active in almost every community within the state.  Our affordable housing initiatives reach many Vermonters, from senior citizens, young families, those who are homeless and those with special needs to residents of mobile home parks. We invite you to travel through our website and see the many housing opportunities and services we provide.

Vermont State Housing Authority does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed or religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ancestry or place of birth, age, U.S. Military Veteran status, familial status, marital status, disability, HIV status, or because income is derived in whole or in part from public assistance in the admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities.
