The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides a wealth of information for those looking to buy a home, but most are actually unaware of this valuable resource available to them. Specific to Vermont, you can find information on Homeownership Assistance by clicking here. There is information available for every state, but for the purpose of this I will focus on just Vermont. The information provided includes Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) as well as the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Housing, which is homebuyer programs in rural communities.
But aside from the home buying assistance programs, there is also a great deal of information on Owning and Maintaining your home.
- Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
- Home Repairs
- Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance
- And so much more...
I would recommend anyone read through the wealth of information provided through HUD, as the resources it links to can save you a bunch of money, as well as assist you if you are struggling to make things work.
