If you or someone you know is elderly or disabled and currently renting housing, the Connecticut’s Renters’ Rebate Program is now open.
Applications are being accepted through October 1st and eligible renters may be able to get a rebate up to $900 for married couples and $700 for single persons.
The renters’ rebate amount is based on a graduated income scale and the amount of rent and utility payments (excluding telephone) made in the calendar year prior to the year in which the renter applies.
Here are some of the guidelines to qualify for the rebate:
• 65 years old or above
• 50 years old or above and the surviving spouse of a renter who at the time of the renter’s death had qualified and was entitled to tax relief provided such spouse was domiciled with such renter at the time of the renters’ death
• 18 years old or above and eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits
• One-year state resident
The application period runs from April 1st – October 1st, 2022. This program is sponsored by the State of Connecticut; Office of Policy & Management may provide elderly and disabled renters with a small refund check based on the amount of rent and utilities they paid in 2021. The application, can be made to your town social service agency or the assessor’s office.
