Housing advocates say more Vermonters will face evictions as the pandemic-era rental assistance program winds down.

The Vermont Emergency Rental Assistance Program, a pandemic-era program that thousands of Vermonters rely on, is winding down. The Scott administration said Wednesday it found $20 million to partially extend it. But for many, the benefit will end in December.

Host Connor Cyrus talks with an advocate working with people facing homelessness in Vermont.

Our guest is:

  • Rebecca T. Plummer, medical-legal partnership project director at Vermont Legal Aid

Broadcast live at noon on Friday, Sept. 23, 2022.
