The Greenwich Department of Human Services is currently accepting application for the State of CT Rent Rebate Program.  

State law provides a program for renters who are elderly (65 years of age or older) or who are disabled and whose annual incomes do not exceed certain limits. Under this program, a check is directly remitted to an approved applicant by the State. The check represents a partial refund of rental and utility payments. Persons renting an apartment, cooperative housing, congregate living or even leasing a mobile home space may be eligible. 

 

The rebate represents the previous rental year which is 2020, not the current year.

 

Rent Rebates can be up to $900.00 for married couples and $700.00 for unmarried applicants.

 

Maximum allowable income in 2020 to qualify:  

 

Single person - $37,600       Married Couple - $45,800
