Bennington Rental Rehab

Bennington Rental Rehab

NeighborWorks of Western Vermont offers affordable loans and grants, advice, and support to small scale rental property owners who want to make health, safety, and efficiency improvements to their 1-4 unit rental properties in the Town of Bennington.

We will help you plan the project, find reliable contractors and competitive prices, and help you manage your project through completion.

Common Repair Projects include:

  • Structural issues
  • Accessibility issues
  • Leaky roofs
  • Outdated wiring
  • Weatherization
  • Inefficient heating systems

We know finding a lender to finance these projects is challenging for rental property owners.

Due to our nonprofit mission to promote healthy, safe and efficient housing, we’re running a pilot program in the Town of Bennington offering grant/loan combinations to qualified owners as funding for these repairs:

  • Grants: Up to $7,000 per unit for up to 5 units (4 apartments and the building)
  • Affordable Loans

New Handbook for Bennington Landlords:

The Bennington office has completed a comprehensive guide to the pilot Rental Rehabilitation program that NWWVT administers within the Town of Bennington. This new eight-page handbook covers the origins of this grant-funded initiative, criteria for participation, lending and right through the actual construction process.

NeighborWorks is part of a broad effort by the State of Vermont to improve deteriorated rental housing throughout the state, but our project in Bennington is the first of its kind.
