Estelle Katz Program for Senior Renters

As a result of BrooklineCAN advocacy, Town Meeting voted in May, 2015 to fund 10 positions in the Estelle Katz employment program for senior renters. The Katz program was introduced in 2014 on a limited basis through a grant from the Hamilton Charitable Foundation. It parallels the highly successful property-tax work-off program through which qualified home owners receive reduction in property tax in exchange for service to a Town department.  Renters can now earn up to $1000 annually.  Town Administrator Mel Kleckner and Selectman Nancy Daly played key roles in obtaining Town funding for the program. For more information about the program contact Deidre Waxman at the Brookline Senior Center 617-730-2767 or dwaxman@brooklinema.gov.
