The 2021 Vermont COVID-19 Arrearage Assistance Program (VCAAP II) provides financial support to customers who may face disconnection of service because of past-due balances for their electric, landline telephone, Vermont Gas (natural gas), water or sewer/wastewater charges.
Vermonters financially impacted by COVID-19 (either directly or indirectly) with 30+ days overdue charges, or who have a closed account with an unpaid balance, can get help now to pay their arrearages for residential (both homeowners and tenants) and non-residential accounts. Homeowners may only apply for a grant for their primary residence. Residential assistance is available for up to a total of $10,000; businesses can receive up to a total of $50,000 in assistance.
