Medicaid for the Aged, Blind and Disabled (MABD) online application


As a valued community partner, we want to share the exciting news that Vermonters can now apply for Medicaid for the Aged, Blind and Disabled (MABD) online at! Until now, Vermonters could apply online for Medicaid for Children and Adults (MCA) and Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) but not MABD.


This online option provides Vermonters with another way to apply and access their health insurance. The MABD online application allows self-service for both new applicants and enrollees transitioning from Medicaid for Children and Adults (MCA).


The MABD online application is not for renewals or reporting healthcare changes. It is simply for new applicants who do not have active MABD coverage.


Help us share this exciting news on social media!

Vermont Housing Finance Agency

Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) is now accepting applications from Vermont homeowners who are behind on their housing expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded through the Federal American Rescue Plan Act, the Vermont Homeowner Assistance Program provides grants for eligible Vermont homeowners for missed payments on their mortgage, utilities, property taxes, and homeowner's or condominium association fees. The program is restricted to expenses related to a homeowner's primary home (other eligibility criteria apply).

With thousands of homeowners in towns across the state facing overdue housing bills, we appreciate your help getting news about this important program to residents through Front Porch Forum and other networks. To learn more and apply, they can visit, or call our hotline at (833) 221-4208.

Vermont towns and cities can benefit from the program’s grants for overdue property taxes or local utility payments. Although homeowners must apply for assistance, the payment will be made directly to the municipality or utility provider. You can help by reaching out to residents with overdue bills and letting them know that they might benefit from the program.

Feline and Friends Foundation

Feline and Friends Foundation is a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) group based out of Orleans County, VT. They have successfully addressed the stray and feral cat problem in Orleans County and are now at a manageable level. They are reaching out to other parts of the state to try and do the same for them. They offer FREE assistance to farmers and overwhelmed non-farming homes that need a hand getting out of the cat/kitten cycle. By addressing this issue happier and healthier colonies are created for the cats and the communities.

Sheffield Spoofed


An incident has come to light in which an individual received a telephone call that appeared to originate from the Sheffield town offices. The call DID NOT come from the Sheffield town offices nor from any one at the Sheffield town offices but from a scammer spoofing the Sheffield town offices telephone number. If you receive such a spoofed call, report it.

To the Residents of the Town of Sheffield - Donations for Animals in Need!

The Town of Lyndon has publicly announced that the Lyndon Dog Pound is only for the benefit of Lyndon dogs and cats.  I would like to ask that you keep this in mind when making donations for the benefit of animals.   Donations, monies given to coin drops, articles of food, blankets, bedding all of these things donated to the Lyndon Dog Pound have NO BENEFIT toward helping Sheffield dogs and cats.  I would therefore ask the Town of Sheffield Residents to consider making any and all  donations for the benefit of stray and animals in need to Riverside Rescue in Lunenburg, Vermont.  Riverside Rescue does help with animals almost 100 percent of the time when they are asked for that help.   I would be happy to deliver any donated items to Riverside.

Sincerely, Candace Dane, Sheffield ACO

Northeast Kingdom Council on Aging provides free Home Energy Visits for seniors.

The primary purpose of the home energy visit is to help seniors save energy and money.
Volunteer tasks include:
Install low-cost energy efficient products, such as compact fluorescent light bulbs and low-flow showerheads.
Identify energy saving opportunities in the home, such as opportunities for replacing inefficient appliances and home weatherization.
Provide seniors with resources and information to help them save more energy.
Each visit will last approximately 1-1 ½ hours.
The visit and all products are provided free-of-charge.

Transfer Station and Trash Bags

Small and large bags, required to be able to dispose of trash at the Sheffield/Wheelock Transfer Station, are available at the Town Clerk’s office for $1.00 and $2.00 each, respectively, as well as in rolls of 10. Full rolls of 10 bags are also available at the Transfer Station. Please note that all funds received by either Sheffield or Wheelock are placed into a joint account. Therefore, it does not matter where the bags are purchased. The cost to dispose of the contents of 40 gallon and 55 gallon containers is $4.00 and $5.00 respectively.

The aforementioned bags are NOT required to dispose of recyclable materials. Only recyclable materials are to be taken to the recycling “shed”. Click here or use the link in the Links section to go to the page containing detailed information about the required Pay Per Throw.

Since the start of mandatory recycling and Pay Per Throw at the Transfer Station, the number of trash containers needed in a given period has been reduced from three to one. This translates to a savings for the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock. The more that is recycled, the less trash needs to be carted away and the more money is saved.

Sheffield, located in the northwestern portion of Caledonia County in Vermont 's Northeast Kingdom (NEK), was chartered on October 25, 1793 and has an area of 32.62 square miles at a mean elevation of 907 feet above sea level (ASL).

Miller’s Run School ( 3249 VT Route 122, Sheffield , VT 05866 ) is administered by the Kingdom East School District.

Each Labor Day Sheffield holds its annual Field Day, with a parade and various activities, contests and events, to benefit the Sheffield-Wheelock Fire Department, Food Pantry, camp scholarships and other worthwhile causes.

Sheffield is the site of a 16 turbine commercial wind energy operation. The turbines are designed to generate 100,000 megawatt hours of energy, enough to power approximately 12,600 Vermont homes. The operators of the wind farm pay Sheffield $520,000 annually and some $250,000 to the State Education Fund from the operation of the wind farm.

Mathewson State Forest is a 795 acre forest located in Sheffield and the adjoining towns of Wheelock and Sutton. Mathewson State Forest offers opportunities for primitive camping, hiking and cold water fishing.

Sheffield is part of the Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District (NEKWMD). Sheffield and Wheelock jointly operate the Transfer Station where residents of both towns, after having obtained a valid permit sticker, can dispose of their household refuse and, more importantly, recyclable materials. The more that is recycled the less must be disposed of and the lower the cost to operate the Transfer Station and, ultimately, to the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock. The Transfer Station is open between the hours of 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. Wednesday and Saturday.

The Transfer Station is NOT for the disposal of commercial waste.

Bulky Days, dates on which large and/or bulky items, such as bedding, furniture, etc., may be brought to the Transfer Station for disposal, are the SECOND Wednesday and following Saturday of April, July and October. As the cost to operate the Transfer Station is reflected in the taxes that the residents of Sheffield and Wheelock must pay, everything that helps reduce that cost is a direct savings to the taxpayers of the communities.

Additional items including electronics and tires are recycled at the NEK Waste Management site in Lyndonville. A complete list of items accepted at their site may be found at


Items of Question that must be treated as waste:

 Wax or plastic coated cartons or containers (Milk, juice, ice cream, etc.)

  1. Disposable diapers (children’s or adult’s)
  2. Sanitary pads
  3. Band-Aids, gauze pads or other wound closures and coverings
  4. Used paper tissues
  5. Kitty litter
  6. Styrofoam
  7. Packaged meat absorbent sheets aka “diapers”
  8. Syringes and needles are NOT recyclable! They must be disposed of in the compactor trash.
