Renter's Rebate Program

The State of Connecticut Renters Rebate Program starts May 16, 2016 and runs through September 30, 2016.

The Town of East Haven Social Services Department processed 525 applications from town residents who will be receiving over $280,000 in rebate checks.

Social Services would like to make you aware of some important issues concerning the Renter’s Rebate Program:

  • Rebate checks will be mailed out by the State of Connecticut on OCTOBER 27, 2016. Your check should arrive by November 15, 2016.
  • Rebate recipients do not receive their checks at the same time. Someone you know may receive their check before or after you depending on when you applied and when the check is mailed out. Not all checks are mailed out on the same day. They are mailed over a two week period.
  • The amount of the rebate you receive may not be the same amount calculated on your application if you received cash assistance form the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS). Applicants will have their Renter’s Rebate reduced based on their amount of DSS assistance.

If you do not receive your check by November 15, 2016 please call the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management at 860-418-6377 or Toll Free at 800-617-8889. Please wait until November 15 before calling.
