Applicants from 2011 will automatically receive an application in the mail.
Rebates are $73 for low-income individuals and $224 for low-income families. To be eligible to receive a rebate, people must have been a resident of Boulder for the entire 2011 calendar year and be:
• a low income senior, age 62 or over for the entire 2011 calendar year;
• a low income person with disabilities; or
