Who We Are:

NeighborWorks of Western Vermont is a community development nonprofit located in West Rutland and serving Addison, Rutland, and Bennington Counties (and beyond for many of our services). We support individuals, neighborhoods, and communities through five lines of business and through community building and engagement efforts.

Our Mission:

The mission of NeighborWorks of Western Vermont (NWWVT) is to strengthen the development of a regional economy by promoting safe, efficient and stable housing, and community projects through education, technical assistance, and financial services. NWWVT helps individuals develop self-reliance through education, counseling, technical, and financial services.

Rehousing the Homeless Recovery Grant Program

The CARES act funding that was released during COVID-19, as it came from the federal government to the state, was earmarked for helping and rehousing the homeless. NeighborWorks of Western Vermont (NWWVT) was given this opportunity with this grant to work with landlords in Addison, Rutland, and Bennington counties to address and help vacant blighted properties or properties that are currently in use but had code issues, or health and safety issues. The grant has allowed us to bring units online, rehouse the homeless, and create an affordable, sustainable, healthy living environment using these funds. This video is the story behind this project and how this much needed funding has only touched the tip of the iceberg as far as helping to house the homeless in our community.

Rental Repair Program:

We are nearing the end of our CARES Act Rental Repair program. Work is ongoing and we hope this program continues. For more information, contact us at 802-438-2303.

    NeighborWorks Testimonials

    "Thank you all for the nutritional meals you provided to us on may 9 they were very good. the banana bread was the best thanks again!"
    Jimmie Francis + Erica O'Bara
    "We had a great experience working with Tania at Neighborworrks of Western Vermont. She helped us to secure a loan to renovate my daughters newly acquired older home in Wallingford, Vermont. Through Efficiency Vermont and Neighborworks, we were able to completely update the electrical system in a 100 year old residence. Additionally, we totally insulated the attic and stone cellar with sprayed in rigid insulation which decreased air infiltration by 41%. Thanks also to Jake at Analyzing Energy for advice and guidance through the process."
    Michael Riley
    "Tania was and is an incredible asset for my home energy and efficiency project. She made sure I was well informed of all angles of approach to achieve and surpass my goals. It’s great that Vermont has these facilities and professionals to help its citizens afford a greener, healthier, more responsible lifestyle for our planet. Thank you to all at Neighborworks."
