Benefit Card Program

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

In order to streamline how senior social service programs are administered, the “Evanston Benefit Card” was introduced in 2011.

Programs are now more accessible to seniors and cardholders are eligible for discounts at participating Evanston businesses. In one step, residents qualify for certain benefits in the community such as the Subsidized Transportation Program, a Wheel Tax Discount (formerly Vehicle Sticker), Recreation Program Fee Assistance, Yard Waste Stickers & Cart Discount, and the Handyman Program.

You may apply for an Evanston Benefit Card at the Levy Senior Center from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during the week. Please bring proof of age, income, and Evanston residency. (i.e. drivers license, state ID, last year's income tax return, social security award letter)
