The Vermont Housing &
Conservation Board has awarded two nonprofit housing groups more than $1
million in state and federal funds to buy and reconfigure a
building that has sat vacant since Tropical Storm Irene destroyed much of the state office complex. The project will create 27 new
affordable apartments on Main Street.
This could be an important week in Vermont’s recovery
from the damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene.
State officials are expecting to hear how much money FEMA will pay for
the rehabilitation of the state office complex in Waterbury.
