**Update 6/24/2022: Review draft program guidelines. 

 

On June 30th, from 1:00-2:30 pm, Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) will host a web forum to review proposed guidelines and key components of the Missing Middle Homeownership Development Program. This session will offer an opportunity for comments and feedback on how the Missing Middle Program will be implemented. 

You can register for the session by clicking on this registration link: REGISTER HERE

On June 7th, Governor Scott signed legislation that provides $15 million in funding for the Missing Middle initiative. The program will be funded from a portion of the State’s American Rescue Plan Act funding. The program will provide subsidies and incentives for homebuilders to construct or rehabilitate modest homes affordable to Vermont homebuyers at 120% Area Median Income or lower. 

If you are unable to attend, a recording of the session will be made available to the public after the event, along with an option to provide feedback on VHFA’s website. 

Following the web forum, there will be a two-week open comment period for attendees and the public. VHFA hopes to finalize program guidance and open the application process for project proposals prior to the end of July 2022.
