$1,000 Relief checks coming to Colorado elderly and retirees

C. Heslop

Elderly and retired Colorado locals have a limited time to apply for $1,000 relief checks.

The extra income will help you as living costs continue to increase due to inflation. Governor Jared Polis announced program availability on Monday. Eligible persons will receive up to $1,044 in cash or a $1,000 refundable tax credit.

The Property Tax, Rent, Heat (PTC) Rebate program plans to issue $7 million in relief funds. The money benefits Coloradan elders and people with disabilities.
