We are all things home.

June 2019

Save the date! June 1st through June 8th is NeighborWorks Week! We're joining NeighborWorks organizations around the country to give back to our communities. NeighborWorks Week is a chance to amplify NeighborWorks' collective voice and impact. It's why this year's theme is "Building Strong Communities Together Every Day," because it is through our partnerships that we've helped our communities grow and thrive.

We hope to see you at our NeighborWorks Week Celebration on June 1st and we look forward to helping you grow in our neighborhood!
Happy National NeighborWorks Week!

NeighborWorks Gears Up For Northwest Survey!

It's that time again! We want to hear the voices of the Northwest Neighborhood! As the first phase of the revitalization efforts wind down in the neighborhood, NeighborWorks is looking to hear how things have evolved over the last six years and what is next. The survey, conducted on a three-year cycle, looks at the positive changes in the neighborhood, asks what they would like to see for the future and what they see as signs of success. 

The survey is being conducted during the National NeighborWorks America Week (June 1-8) and will kick off with a neighborhood celebration held at 113 Library Avenue on Saturday, June 1st from 11am-2pm. Twenty volunteers will be out knocking on over 200 doors that day and throughout the following week to hear residents opinions and ideas for their neighborhood and the greater Rutland area.

The Benefits Of Our Down Payment Assistance (DPA) Loan:

Save Time: Don't let saving 20% of the purchase price of a home get in your way!
Save Money: Using a DPA loan means you don't have to pay Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) each month! 
Build Equity: With a DPA loan, your monthly payments go toward repaying what you owe - NOT to PMI, so you can build equity in your home faster!

Down Payment Assistance Loans are available to all eligible borrowers living in any Vermont county.
