Applications for the city of St. Peters’ Lawn Mowing Assistance Program are now available. The program provides lawn mowing assistance for a limited number of St. Peters residents who are elderly or disabled and meet income guidelines.
Applicants who are accepted into the program will be able to have their lawns mowed for them up to eight times this year, improving the livability and appearance of homes in St. Peters.
To be eligible for the program, everyone living in the home must be a resident of St. Peters and at least 62 years old or severely disabled. Applicants are required to provide proof of income as well as proof of age and/or disability. The maximum household income based on 2018 or most recent federal taxes must not exceed: $26,900 [one person]; $30,750 [two people]; $34,600 [three people]; or $38,400 [four people].
