Renters' Rebate

Tell Us How Losing These Funds Affects You

The governor has used his line-item veto power to eliminate the entire $150 million available for low income, senior and disabled renters as tax rebates. This was the governor's single biggest line-item veto in the budget.

Tenants Together is working with allies to make sure these funds are restored. We are collecting stories from the low-income senior/blind/disabled tenants who are affected by the Governor's veto.

Please note that Tenants Together will not share your name, street address, telephone number or email address, unless you authorize us to do so.  The information you enter on this page will not publicly displayed.
