  2. You are a senior citizen or have a disability.

Information for Landlords

This program is for Senior Citizen tenants or tenants with a disability who qualify to have their rent frozen at their current level and be exempt from future rent increases. The program covers legal increases in your rent by applying credits to your property tax bill. For more information you can download the SCRIE/DRIE Brochure for Tenants/Landlords.
