More than $25 million have gone out to thousands of Vermont households to help them pay their rent, and there’s still tens of millions available. The federal money, part of one of the coronavirus aid packages, is meant to help needy families whose finances were hurt by the pandemic. But the availability of money hasn’t stopped evictions, which were halted for more than a year due to state and federal orders. Now those bans are gone, and for families at risk of losing their apartments, there are few places to go.
  • The precarious situation evicted Vermonters find themselves in. Plus, COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continue to rise.
