The County Fiscal Office's Community Outreach program enables residents of our county to become aware of the programs and opportunities that are available to its citizens. Senior citizens, for instance, can benefit from the Homestead Exemption program, which could reduce their property taxes. Citizens on fixed income could also benefit from energy assistance program that helps pay for winter heating bills as well as Ohio Life Line from SBC which can save you up to $12.38 per month off your monthly phone bill. Our goal is to assist the residents of Cuyahoga County by explaining the programs available to them, helping them get in contact with various agencies, and assisting them with the application process.
Our Outreach Department participates in home improvement shows, senior citizen events, summer carnivals, health fairs, Chamber of Commerce events and various other local events occurring throughout Cuyahoga County. At these events we promote the services of the Fiscal Officer, as well as provide residents a complimentary printout describing property characteristics, assessed tax value, square footage, total rooms, and many other aspects of property perspectives.
We also work with the Greater Cleveland Hunger Center on providing help to their clients to have access to county services. This avenue alone allows us to serve tens of thousand of residents per month.
Our staff members participate in many different organizations. We currently serve on various advisory boards, such as Census 2000 Advisory Council and The Buying into Cleveland Committee. Many of our staff members belong to local Chamber of Commerce and various civic groups.
