Renters Rebate Checks Are Going Out

December 6, 2017

I am pleased to report that the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) announced that residents enrolled in the state’s Renter’s Rebate program will be receiving their checks.

The checks started going out last week and participants will receive them in the next several days if they haven’t already.

The Renter’s Rebate program was temporarily paused following the adoption of the biennial state budget on October 31 due to changes that made the program unworkable. We were able to adopt a fix that was signed by the Governor, allowing the program to be restored to its working conditions. 

Over the past few business days, OPM and the Office of the State Comptroller have worked to expedite the process to begin running batches of Renter Rebate checks this week.

In prior years, the state has waited until all checks were printed so they could be mailed out on the same day, but this year they will be sent out as soon as they are printed because of the delays to the program.
