  1. Tax Relief for Disabled Seniors - Arizona offers property tax relief for totally disabled persons who are residents of the state. Totally or permanently disabled homeowners, as long as their property value is not more than a certain level, can receive an exemption for a certain portion of their home's value for property taxes. This is completed through the county assessor's office. More information can be found by calling (602) 716-6843.
  2. Disability Rights in Housing - The United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) offers programs in Arizona to protect disabled senior's rights when it comes to housing. It doesn't matter if the disabled person lives in public or private housing – they receive these rights. HUD prohibits any discrimination against the disabled when it comes to renting or selling the person a home. The rules also force housing providers to make accommodations, within reason, for the disabled. They also have to allow the disabled to make reasonable modifications to increase their enjoyment of life. Finally, in all multifamily housing buildings, all bottom floor units must comply with the Fair Housing Act.
