Housing Assistance Appeals, Decisions, and Hearings
Did someone refuse to give you rent assistance? Is your rent assistance or Section 8 being stopped? Use this form to ask for a hearing. You need to give the form to the place that turned you down within 10 days of being denied.
Fuel Assistance and Subsidized Housing
In some cases, people in subsidized housing, including people who get Section 8 assistance, can get fuel assistance. You should apply today to see if you are eligible. If you receive food stamps (3SquaresVT) and are found eligible for Seasonal Fuel Assistance, you may get an increase in your food stamp amount.
To find out if you’re eligible, print a fuel assistance application and fill it out or apply online. The Seasonal Fuel Program will process it. The program has income, resource, and household member rules. After applying, you will receive a notice in the mail that tells you if you are eligible.
For more information, go to the fuel assistance website.
