How can this program help me?

This program lets you do volunteer work for the City to lower your property taxes if you are a qualifying older adult. Through the Work-Off program, you can work within a City department that needs volunteer help. In return, you can earn money to put towards your yearly tax bill. For each hour you work, you are credited no more than the current minimum wage.

How do I get help?

Please contact the Boston Elderly Commission Coordinator to find out how to apply.
