The state and Vermont Legal Aid have reached a settlement over the end of a hotel voucher program for some of the homeless population during the pandemic.
They say under the settlement, eligibility for the emergency housing program will be expanded for people with disabilities.
They say a formal process will also be created for applicants whose health or welfare would be at risk due to their disability if they were unsheltered.
