Utility Assistance Opportunities
The Vermont Emergency Rental Assistance Program (VERAP) was created to help renters dealing with financial challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For eligible households, the program offers rental and utility assistance to help Vermonters avoid eviction or loss of utility service. ERAP was established by the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021.

The Vermont Department for Children and Families (DCF) just launched the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) to help eligible households pay their water and wastewater bills. Eligible households are those with gross household income below 60% of the state median income based on household size. Priority will be given to households whose water/wastewater has been disconnected or is at risk of being disconnected.

Vermont Homeowner's Assistance Program (VHAP) is now accepting applications from Vermont homeowners who are behind on their housing expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded through the Federal American Rescue Plan Act, the Vermont Homeowner Assistance Program provides grants for eligible Vermont homeowners for missed payments on their mortgage, utilities (water/sewer, electricity, home heating), property taxes, and homeowner's or condominium association fees. The program is restricted to expenses related to a homeowner's primary home (other eligibility criteria apply). If applicants are approved, payments will be made directly to service providers. VHAP is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number HAFP-0040 awarded to the State of Vermont by the US Department of the Treasury.

Since January 1, 2021, Hyde Park Electric has objected to each new NMR application due to potential risk to distribution system stability, reliability and safety.
There have been no new net-metering additions since January 1 2021.
We trust that this most recent letter of objection explains the current circumstance in greater detail. If you have questions, please contact us.
