River & Stream Debris Information

Please see the attached link below. The State of Vermont needs help in order to proceed with the clean up of the debris from the flood that occurred in July. It is very important that property owners report debris to the Town Manager’s Office 802-472-6120. This will help the State of Vermont and State Emergency Management Program know where there needs attention.

**Federal Disaster Declaration for Caledonia County**

If you haven’t heard already, Caledonia County was just added to the major disaster declaration. This means residents of Hardwick can now apply for FEMA Individual Assistance. 

FEMA will have a mobile trailer set up at the Hardwick Elementary School. Residents can meet with FEMA at the mobile trailer to apply for assistance and have any questions answered regarding individual assistance.

We will continue to post fact sheets and pertinent information to our website as it becomes available.

Individuals – click here for more information.

0% Flood Relief Loans for Vermonters

A message from Vermont State Employees Credit Union (VSECU):

Flood Relief Loans for Vermonters & Businesses

As we’ve been working to reopen our branch services in Central Vermont, we’ve also been busy developing new loan options to provide financial relief to those impacted by the floods.

  • Thanks to a partnership with the Vermont Community Foundation, we’re able to offer 0% financing on up to $3,000 for Vermont residents with our member emergency loan. Because the devastation is so widespread, we’re also waiving any credit requirements so anyone can get approved for much-needed funds.
  • For members with existing loans, we’re offering two-month deferments, loan forbearance, and fixed reduced payments. For more information and to see which option is best for you, give us a call at 802/800 371-5162.
  • Some of our local businesses have been hit the hardest. Contact our business lending team to learn about our three flood disaster business loans, ranging from $20,000 to $250,000 with a low, fixed rate.

If you have any questions or aren’t sure if you qualify for these flood disaster recovery loans, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are here to support our members and our communities through these times of need.
