How these funds are used
The revenue from the Senior Citizens’Serivces tax is to provide programs which will improve the health, nutrition, and quality of life of persons aged sixty and older.
Many Greene County Seniors especially wanted help so they could stay in their own homes as long as they could safely do so.
Using this revenue, the Senior Services Fund Board has addressed a number of issues by making grants to agencies in Greene County that provide services to seniors.
By augmenting the services of agencies that had years of experience in assisting seniors, it was possible to avoid duplicating adminstrative expenses. This means that nearly all of the tax dollars are spent on increased services, or on altogether new services.
The members of the Senior Services Fund Board are pleased to be able to facilitate the delivery of these services to our county’s senior citizens.
