Renters Rebate Checks Are Being Mailed

December 5, 2017

The Office of Policy and Management has announced that residents enrolled in the state’s Renter’s Rebate program are expected to receive their checks this week.

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.

But thanks to quick action by the legislature, a fix was made and new legislation was signed by the governor, allowing the program to be restored. 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.
