Gate money for Vermont:
Before the recent budget crisis that most states are now facing, the Vermont Department of Corrections had leases on apartments throughout the state, in which inmates could live during their transition back into the community. Budget cuts eliminated that program, so now inmates have lost the time cushion that allowed them to find work while not worrying about housing. Vermont has no formal gate money program, but the state does provide transportation to their community service-provider when necessary.
