Assistance Programs and Exemptions

PROPERTY TAX POSTPONEMENT FOR SENIOR CITIZENS, BLIND, AND/OR DISABLED

California's Property Tax Postponement (PTP) Program, administered by Controller Yee, allows homeowners who are seniors, are blind, or have a disability and who meet income, equity, and other requirements to postpone payment of property taxes on their primary residence.

Funding for PTP is limited, and applications will be processed beginning October 1 in the order they are received. Participants must reapply each year and demonstrate they continue to meet eligibility requirements. A lien will be placed on the real property, or a security agreement filed with the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for a manufactured home, until the account is paid in full. 

Applications and additional program details can be found online or by calling (800) 952-5661.


CALIFORNIA'S MORTGAGE RELIED PROGRAM

On December 20, 2021, the State of California released information about the Mortgage Relief Program: 
Californians at or below 100 percent of their county's Area Median Income, who own a single-family home, condo or manufactured home (permanently affixed) and faced a pandemic-related financial hardship after January 21, 2020, may be eligible. 
The California Mortgage Relief Program will begin accepting applications in the coming weeks through an online portal at CaMortgageRelief.org. Interested applicants can visit the website to review  program eligibility information leading up to the launch of the application portal.
A detailed description of California’s program, as approved by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, can be viewed here
