Establishment of Funds

The establishment of this fund does not preclude the town from adopting other programs. It is also not meant to replace programs such as the town's tax exemption programs. Any financial assistance provided to a taxpayer from this fund would not affect any property tax exemption that the person would otherwise be able to receive. Because funding for this program comes only from donations, the town will not and cannot guarantee a level of assistance, or that the aid would be recurring.
