Help offered during homeowner and renter assistance filing time

LAKE COUNTY – Now through Oct. 15 is the filing period for eligible California homeowners or renters to apply for a once-a-year payment from the state.


You may be eligible to file a 2008 claim if, on Dec. 31, 2007, you were age 62 or older, blind or disabled; had a total household income of $44,096 or less; and are a United States citizen, designated alien or qualified alien.


Homeowners must have been living in their California homes; renters must have lived in a qualified California rented residence and paid $50 or more in monthly rent.


Maximum payments this year may be as much as $472.60 for homeowners and $347.50 for renters, but may be decreased if the program is affected by California’s budget deficit and cuts. Information and forms FTB 9000H/9000R are available from the Franchise Tax Board at www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/hra or by calling 800-868-4171.


Seniors may also receive assistance at the following locations:

  • Highlands Senior Service Center, telephone 994-3051; by appointment, Tuesday and Thursday, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Lakeport Senior Center, telephone 263-4218; on a walk-in basis, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
