New Castle County VHAP Program deadline January 31, 2012
The New Castle County Vacant Home Program called VHAP for short has run its course as a forgivable loan after 5 years. The county has set a deadline of January 31st for any application for the VHAP program which will give up to $10,000 for down payment and closing costs that is forgiven if you live in the home as your primary residence for 5 years. If you would like to apply for a mortgage using the VHAP program call 302-703-0727 or you can APPLY ONLINE and we can get you started.
The County will be transitioning to a new Vacant Home Program called VHAP2 which will be a deferred loan instead of a forgivable grant. The new program is set to roll out on March 1, 2012, so there will be a gap in availability of this program from February 1, 2012, till March 1, 2012, when the new program is set to roll out. Details of the new program have not been released yet.
The deadline for receiving new VHAP 1 applications will be January 31, 2012. All current and new applications must be complete by this date in order to guarantee to fund by New Castle County.
Additionally, with the influx of loans we anticipate receiving before the deadline, effective immediately all new loans will now require a minimum 20 business days in processing time for New Castle County to process the file and have money ready for funding.
