Property taxes and rent are two of the largest expenses that individuals and families have to pay each year. Low-income seniors and adults with disabilities need help keeping pace with property taxes and rents without fear of losing their home or apartment due to rising costs.
Since the program's 1971 inception, older and disabled adults have received more than $6.9 billion in property tax and rent relief throughout Pennsylvania. This program provides real relief to low-income seniors and disabled adults.
