Widows and widowers who have less than $50,000 in assets (excluding value of the home) who have lived in the home for at least 5 years are eligible for assistance if the spouse passed before July 1, 2022.

Elders aged 70 and older who have lived in Massachusetts for 10 consecutive years and have owned and occupied the property for any 5 years are eligible for assistance if gross income is less than $37,367 for a married couple, $24,911 for a single person including Social Security.
