Renter’s Rebate is a reimbursement program for Connecticut renters who are elderly or totally disabled, and whose incomes do not exceed certain limits. Persons renting an apartment or room, or living in cooperative housing or a mobile home may be eligible for this program. Renter’s rebate can be up to $900 for married couples and up to $700 for single persons. The renter’s rebate amount is based on a graduated income scale and amount of rent and utility payments made in the calendar year prior to the year in which the renter applies.
Appointments can be made from April 1st – Oct. 1st by calling 203-287-2691 at the Hamden Miller Senior Center located at 2901 Dixwell Avenue, around back from the library.
Regardless of how early or late you apply, you will receive your check between mid October and November.
