Ready, Set, Rent!


Ready, Set, Rent (RSR) is a program of the Champlain Housing Trust (CHT) and is an invitation-only program.  The Ready, Set, Rent! (RSR) program helps people who want to rent from CHT or join a CHT co-ops, but have poor credit.

RSR is a financial education program designed to help rental or co-op applicants overcome a credit barrier and become eligible to rent from CHT.  Please note the program does not guarantee a CHT apartment.  RSR is comprised of a workshop and an individual counseling appointment.

DUE TO COVID – all workshops and counseling are virtual, using Zoom.
