Gold Card


Here are 2 important notices for you!

1.  PEARL PROGRAM UPDATE - The state of Pennsylvania has changed it's earning threshold for those applying Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.  The income eligibility cap is now $45,000 (up from $35,000).  This program applies those individuals who meet this income threshold and are age 65 and older.

2.  GOLD CARDS are now available for seniors age 62 and older who live in the Palisades School District.  They can be obtained by dropping by our District Office located at 39 Thomas Free Drive, Kintnersville, PA  18930.  Please have proof of identity/age with you when you come in to pick up a card.  The card entitles you to a 10% discount on Palisades events and evening school registration.  Enjoy!
