VERMONT EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (VERAP)
*IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT ELIGIBILITY*
VERAP is a new program to help with rent, back rent, utilities, back utilities, and other housing expenses. Unlike RHSP which provided back rent assistance through December 2020, VERAP ELIGIBILITY IS LIMITED TO VERMONT RENTERS WHO MEET ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
Rent assistance can be provided for 3 months at a time. Yes, you can apply for forthcoming months.
APPLY ONLINE AT https://erap.vsha.org. UNLIKE RHSP, YOUR LANDLORD (ACCT) CANNOT COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FOR YOU.
IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION THAT MAY INCLUDE A COPY OF YOUR LEASE AND THE AMOUNT OF RENT YOU OWE. PLEASE CONTACT JEFF TO MAKE SURE THE AMOUNT YOU APPLY FOR MATCHES OUR RECORDS; THIS WILL BE REQUIRED IN ORDER TO RECEIVE ASSISTANCE.
If you think you owe back rent, or not sure what your rent is, PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL JEFF at 802-877-2626 x104, because you will need the correct figures to apply. Statements occasionally have errors.
IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT NOT BE ELIGIBLE AND NEED TO SET UP A PAY PLAN, CONTACT JEFF WEDWALDT AT 802-877-2626 x104 or via EMAIL

Hi, I cannot log onto my renters portal. It said my email password was wrong. I changed the password and it will not take the new password.
