Eligible applicants must be owner-occupied homeowners who own their home and property for a minimum of one year; reside inside the city limits as a full-time resident; and are at least 62-years old or have a disability or have children under the age of 18 living in the home.

Applications are available several ways:

1. Online.
2. For pick up at the Apache Junction Development Services Department, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.
3. By mail. Call 480-474-2635 to request a copy.

A Spanish version of the application may also be obtained. Privacy is a priority, and recipients of the program and information collected in the application process are held in strict confidentiality, according to the release.

Funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
