Homestead/Community Service

The Department of Community Services' main focus is to administer the Homestead Exemption Property Tax Reduction program and enhance participation through extensive public awareness.  Our statutory obligation mandates the auditing of 100,000 Homestead Exemption recipients and 3,500 new applications on an annual basis.  A meticulous examination of comprehensive supportive documentation is required to determine eligibility resulting in a saving to individual homeowners.

Information about other discount services is also available through the Department of Community Services including the Golden Buckeye Card program, Homestead Exemption Water & Sewer, Home Weatherization and Repair Assistance, and the Universal Service Assistance program.

We are united in our public service commitment to provide senior and disabled members of our community with valuable information and the capacity to enroll in all programs that will enhance their lives.  Our friendly and capable staff is available to answer your questions.
