Veteran Work-Off Abatement Program

October 15, 2019

Mayor Brian Arrigo announced this week the City of Revere’s Veteran Service office is now accepting applications for the Veteran Work-Off Program Fiscal Year 2020. This new initiative, championed by the Mayor and Councillor Morabito, was unanimously approved by the City Council, allowing veterans the opportunity to work within City departments in exchange for an abatement on their property tax or water bill.

The program will offer qualified veterans, the spouse of a disabled veteran, or the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran, the opportunity to contribute 68 hours for a $750 property tax abatement or 45.5 hours for a $500 water bill credit.

“We’re committed to keeping the tax burden as low as possible for Revere businesses and residents alike, particularly the men and women who have valiantly served our country,” said Mayor Arrigo. “Our Veteran Service office goes above and beyond for Revere veterans, this initiative is a welcoming addition to provide well deserved relief to the ones who need it most.”

In order to qualify for the program, the applicant must be the assessed owner of the property, and provide a DD 214 form. Residents will be required to provide a copy of ONE of the following: birth certificate, driver’s license or passport.

This program is limited to 50 applicants working for a property tax abatement and 50 applicants to work for a water bill credit. In the event more than 100 applicants apply for the Veteran Work Off Program, a public lottery shall be announced at a later date.

Applications are available in the Veteran Service office, the Mayor’s office and online at www.revere.org/departments/veterans-office.

The deadline for submission of the completed application is December 31, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
