Directory of Affordable Rental Housing (DoARH)

Search results: Tenant-based rental assistance

The DoARH lists all Vermont rental housing units subsidized by federal or state funding. Another type of low-income housing subsidy is tenant-based assistance, which is not tied to a specific unit but, instead, can be used in a variety of rental housing in Vermont.

Vermont's local public housing authorities (PHAs) have tenant-based "vouchers" available to individuals and families who want to live within their jurisdictions.

The Vermont State Housing Authority also has vouchers available in communities outside PHA jurisdiction.

When contacting a PHA, state you're interested in finding out about rental assistance programs that might be available in your area.
