What resources are available for tenants who do not have email or computer/internet capability, to help file forms?
Melanie Murphy
36:03
Are there resources for people needing assistance with paying their property taxes?
Connie Beal
37:32
Melanie's point is important as I heard that the Dept of Taxes said there were significantly low #s of property tax adjustment claims filed. Tax deadline was extended to 7/15 but not sure VTers actually got their adjustments in

Laura Ryan

If I had two tenants in arrears, one with a positive history - and one without, can I accept payment for only the tenant I would like to keep?
jacob charland
50:08
That is correct Laura
Hannah Forbes
50:44
can applications be filled out by hand then scanned and emailed?
lydia Sabourin

Michele Wright

Is there a financial cap that can be paid or accepted?
William Simoneau II
57:06
Thanks everybody. Gotta run.
Melanie Murphy
57:50
Sounds like Ginger might be asking a similar question to mine in regards to amount
jacob charland
57:58
Melanie-What ever is owed in back rent or the VSHA standard monthly payment, which ever amount is less times the months rent was missed. That is the cap.

Question about VSHA Rental Housing Stabilization Program: Will people that answer on the application that their rent isn't sustainable be denied for rent arrearage funds?
Retta Murphy
01:01:00
If someone has been moved into emergency housing due to eviction situation, can they apply for rent arrearage with the hope of getting back into the rental they left - presuming the tenant would be in accord
Patricia Logue
01:01:12
if a tenant already submitted her application without landlord's part what's best way for her to continue....
Anais Roy
01:01:15
This might have already been answered, but somebody doesn't have to demonstrate proof of a plan for paying rent in the future, right? For example, showing that they are going to be working
lydia Sabourin
01:01:54
Retta, the stabilization program is for tenants currently living in the apartment, not past tenants
lydia Sabourin
01:02:04
Patricia,
Karin Ames
01:02:23
Thanks for clarifying
Jess Hyman
01:02:24
tenants and landlords can request paper copies of the application form from Legal Aid and VT Landlord Association.
lydia Sabourin
01:02:26
you can send your part at any time the sooner the better
Retta Murphy
01:03:07
When decision is made, how will we find out if rent arrearage prior to March 1 will be considered for this program?
Retta Murphy
01:06:28
sorry - i meant to say presuming the landlord would be in accord; this particular tenant just moved out a week ago
Connie Beal
01:06:52
Thank you all - this was very helpful! I'm sorry I have to leave for another call
Melanie Murphy
01:07:55
How does a family apply for GA housing that is recently homeless
