    funds for housing

    MONTPELIER — Four Vermont groups are going to be getting $350,000 in federal grants to help improve housing conditions for low-income rural residents.

    The money will be used to make general repairs, energy and weatherization improvements and code updates to more than 130 households in Vermont.

    Almost $300,000 of those grants is headed to the Northeast Kingdom as a Rural Economic Area Partnership Zone, a designation recognizing the unique rural nature of a region.

    U.S. Sens. Patrick Leahy and Bernard Sanders and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch say the investments in housing improvements will make lives and communities better.

    The grants are part of the $3.8 million released by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development’s Housing Preservation Grant program.
