Pic-Penny-(1).pngBloomfield Township Senior Services receives 3/5 of a penny from a tax dollar paid to Bloomfield Township.

The Senior Service Millage is one half of one percent of a BT tax dollar* and provides only 50% of the BTSS budget. We must generate approximately $750,000 annually to maintain our current level of services.

A full 85% of the non-tax funding comes from user fees and co-pays for services. We believe that those benefiting from programs and services should support them unless they have demonstrated low income.

Annually, we welcome 70-75,000 visits and provide a high level of customer service in a friendly atmosphere. Our supportive services translate into 26,000 "units" representing a ride to the center or medical appointment, an hour of respite care for a loved one living with dementia or a hot meal delivered to a homebound senior. BTSS is a truly cost effective investment in this community; we are turning your dollars into wellness and independence for many. Thank you for your ongoing support!

*Only 28 cents of every tax dollar paid stays in Bloomfield Township for all Township services. 72% of taxes support schools and community colleges, the county, the library, SMART, the Zoo and DIA.
