Program Application Assistance
The Human Services Department provides staff to assist residents with finding information and completing applications for local, state, and federal assistance programs. These services may enhance the quality of life and we can aid in navigating programs and support residents in applying for them. Call 860-258-2799 for more information or to make an appointment.
Renters’ Rebate Program
Connecticut provides a reimbursement program for renters who are elderly or totally disabled, and whose incomes do not exceed certain limits. Persons renting an apartment
or room, or living in cooperative housing or a mobile home may be eligible for this program. Renters’ rebates can be up to $900 for
married couples and $700 for single persons. The renters’ rebate amount is based on a graduated income scale and the amount of rent and utility payments (excluding telephone) made in the calendar year prior to the year in which the renter applies. An application may be completed with your town social service agency, or the Assessor’s Office, depending on the town, between April 1st and October 1st.
For more information or to make an appointment to apply please call Human Services at 860-258-2799.
Back-to-School Program
Human & Youth Services, with the help of
our generous donors, has a Back-to-School Program for our disadvantaged Rocky Hill families. During the last 2 weeks of August, this program provides back-to-school supplies, backpacks, and gift cards for shoes and clothing, for Rocky Hill children entering Kindergarten through 12th grade. The program depends on community donations and is on
a first-come, first-serve basis to help families offset the costs of sending their children back to school. Please call 860-258-2799 to make an appointment to apply to pick up supplies.
Holiday Family Program
Human, Youth, & Senior Services coordinates holiday programs for Rocky Hill families that need help with the upcoming holiday season; we can assist with food, gift cards, and gifts for children 12 and under. If your family is in need this holiday season please call 860-258-2799 for more information.
Holiday Meal Program
Human Services can have a fresh meal delivered for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Easter to anyone that might be alone during the holiday season. There are no qualifications or limitations on the program, we just want every resident to enjoy a nice meal on the holidays.
