If a property is assessed at $1,625,000 or less and a homeowner meets certain criteria, they could receive the full regular grant amount. Properties assessed over that value may receive a partial grant. Property owners must pay at least $350 in property taxes to help fund services such as road maintenance and police services. The amount payable may be less for seniors, veterans, or people with disabilities.
When to apply:
The ideal time to apply for the Home Owner Grant is when the May 2021 property tax notice has arrived in the mail and before the property tax is due. However, a homeowner can still apply for the grant up to December 31 of the current tax year and can apply even if they haven’t paid their property taxes.
