Catch up on your property tax payments
If you are behind on your property tax payments and struggling to catch up, OHSI is here to help. We provide up to $40,000 to help homeowners catch up on their property tax payments. If you qualify, these funds are available at no cost to you as long as you do not sell your home or refinance it for cash for at least five years.
“OHSI showed us that there is still compassion and hope out there for real families with real struggles, and that our community cared.”
-The Tucker family, Washington County
