BWAHAHHAHAHAA!!! That's odd since some towns have a fairly high percentage of Section 8 (a HUD managed program) recipients in their renting/tenant population.

No dig on them. VT is a hard place to find decent, good paying jobs. Just saying...funny but definitely not true.

My own personal experience is most people are accepting of decent hardworking people. They don't really care where you're from (though you'll get that flatlander ribbing, but it's cool). If you like this place and you're neighborly, you'll fit right in.

The indecent loafers are also accepted if they have an engaging personality.

Cool. There have, of course, been POC active in communities all over Vermont since then. When I moved here, St Johnsbury had a black selectman. He died in the mid-2000's and his obituary said his family had been there some 5 or more generations. There's stories like that all over VT.

For anyone interested there is a good book about Lucy Prince and her husband Abijah. It is "Mr & Mrs. Prince" by Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina published in 2008. Lucy Prince was a remarkable woman who amongst other things successfully represented herself in VT State court when she sued white men that violated her rights. That was both a testament to her for her tenacity and to Vermont for recognizing the rights of a poor black woman.

No dig on section 8 intended, except where it applies.

Fair Housing: HUD's Radical New Definition | National Review

This was a huge hullabaloo. Westchester county took federal money for housing and in return, the federal government sought to build affordable housing in some of the wealthier enclaves. Major uproar!
