MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Housing and Conservation Board is distributing more than $4 million in grants to 10 organizations to carry out projects across the state.

The grants announced Thursday will help improve rental housing, home ownership and land conservation.

The funds will be used to construct or rehabilitate 172 affordable apartments, provide affordable homeownership to five households, conserve nearly 80 acres of land and restore an historic building.

Some of the projects include 35 new apartments for senior citizens in the planned new town center of South Burlington.

Another project will develop 18 apartments in the upper stories of the historic French Block in Montpelier. The upper two stories have been vacant since the 1940s.
