The Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) is offering the Vermont Homeowner Assistance Program (VHAP) to provide help for homeowners who have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19 after January 21, 2020. Financial hardship due to COVID-19 includes loss in income or material increase in living expenses from job loss, reduction in work hours, increased costs due to child care or illness, or the need to care for a family member (including a hardship that began before the pandemic, but continued during and after).

Income-eligible Vermonters* may apply for assistance for their primary residence to avoid home foreclosure or homeowner displacement. This can include assistance with overdue mortgage payments, homeowners’ association fees, property taxes, and/or utilities (including electric, gas, fuel oil, and water). The program is expected to run for several years. 

*Less than or equal to 150% of Area Median Income.

For more information, to find out if you qualify, and apply for the program, please visit the VHFA’s VT Homeowner Assistance Program webpage. To view VHAP Frequently Asked Questions, please visit the VHAP FAQ webpage.

TAX SALES

If the property being sold at tax sale is your primary residence, you may be able to get help with delinquent property tax and utility payments through the Vermont Homeowner Assistance Program (VHAP).  VHAP can help you avoid tax sale and transfer of your property by paying delinquent property taxes, water and sewer charges, interest, and penalties.  You can apply for VHAP online at vermonthap.vhfa.org  For advice about the program and help completing the application, call Vermont Legal Aid at 1- 800-889-2047.  If you apply for VHAP, you must notify your town in writing, and your property will not be sold or transferred while your application is pending. 

Tax Sales are generally held the first Thursday in November annually. Tax Sale Notices are posted on the Warning page of this website, at the Town Clerk’s Office, both Hyde Park post offices and are advertised in the News & Citizen. Questions regarding tax sales can be directed to Kimberly Moulton, Delinquent Tax Collector at (802)888-2300.

There was no tax sale in November 2022 as all properties listed were paid up.
