Measure I Senior Waiver 2019 Application Now Available

 

The Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) has posted information for seniors and other individuals wishing to apply for waivers to the Measure I Parcel Tax.

 

Approved by voters in 2016, Measure I is a local funding continuation measure to provide additional resources to help local schools continue attracting and retaining highly-qualified teachers, including science teachers, for 21st century education, maintaining math, reading and writing programs and protecting student safety and security.

 

FUSD provides an opportunity for senior citizens to apply for a Senior Exemption Waiver to the Measure I Parcel Tax. Fremont residents, who are or will be 65 years of age or older on June 30, 2019, and own and live in a single-family home may apply for this exemption.

 

Residents receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), regardless of age, who own and occupy their principal residence may also apply for an exemption.

 

The application for the Measure I exemption is only for First-Time Applicants. Persons who are owners of Parcels used solely for owner-occupied, single-family residential purposes who previously applied for a Measure I exemption  are automatically exempted from Measure I and do not have to file a new application. Deadline for all applications is 4:30pm, Saturday, June 29th, 2019.

 

Applications are available to the public at the Fremont Main Library, the Fremont Senior Center and are also available on the Fremont Unified School District website. The application can be printed and mailed - with the required supporting documentation - to the FUSD District Office – 4210 Technology Dr., Room 290, Fremont, CA 94538 – faxed to 510-659-2597, or dropped off in person. Please call 510-979-7709 with any questions.
