Senior Program

Posted on February 8, 2021

Starting this Spring the city will offer a new service to our income – eligible senior and disabled home owners.  In order to get this program rolling we need our residents to speak up and say if they are interested so the county can get some good bids from contractors.  So far, we only have three interested residents so we would appreciate it if you help us spread the word.

The program will allow you to get your lawn mowed, (starting in spring), your leaves raked (starting in fall) and snow plowed (starting next winter) if you are over 65 (or disabled) and have an annual gross income within limits set by the Federal government.  We fully understand that some of you may want these services but may not fit into the income guidelines.  Please know that if it was up to us, we’d make this more flexible.  However, we are constrained by what we can offer, and to whom, by Federal regulations governing the Community Development Block Grant program.

We don’t have any control over the income limits but we do know that there are some people out there that could use this service.  More information on our program can be found at or call Lisa Reeves, the CDBG Specialist for the Portage Regional Planning Commission, at 330-297-3613 /
