BARRE — A nonprofit organization dedicated to improving distressed communities will be awarding more than $425,000 in federal money to its five Vermont affiliates.
The money that the Neighborhood Works America program is awarding through five competitive federal grants will be used to help inform Vermonters about homeownership and to preserve and develop affordable rental housing.
The Barre-based Central Vermont Community Land Trust is among the recipients. The land trust, which serves Washington, Orange and Lamoille counties, will receive $84,600 for the first half of the fiscal year.
Only two Vermont affiliates will be awarded more money. The Champlain Valley Housing Trust, which serves Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties, will receive $92,355, and NeighborWorks of Western Vermont, which serves Rutland, Addison and Bennington counties, will receive $88,125.
The other two grants — both for $81,075 — go to the Gilman Housing Trust, which serves Caledonia, Essex and Orleans counties, and the Windham and Windsor Housing Trust, which serves Windham and Windsor counties.MORE IN Central Vermont
