Renters Rebate Program


This is a program for seniors over 65 and/or disabled people of all ages administered by the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management. This program reimburses eligible low-income renters a portion of rent paid during the year. Applications are taken from April through September of each year. 

As result of the restrictions due to COVID-19, we are asking clients to drop off their documentation at City Hall no later than September 29th. Once we receive all required paperwork, we will call you with any additional questions and arrange a time for you to sign the application.
