Completing a simple application is required. 

Applications are available at senior centers and BCAAA, and will be accepted until Sept. 15. Vouchers will be available for either in-person contactless pickup or mail delivery.

Eligible seniors reside in Bucks County, will be 60 or older by the end of the year and meet annual income requirements.
