To the Editor,
During the pandemic months, the GA Motel Program ensured that every Vermonter in need of shelter got a hotel or motel room at no cost, providing stability and safety to the most vulnerable Vermonters during a crisis.
However, in July, the motel program transitioned and hundreds of people were kicked out. Hundreds of people were literally handed a tent to sleep on the streets.
