My family and I are planning to move to Arizona. We live in Chicago, Illinois; it is very cold here and in the summer the humidity is very high. Due to my medical health and my doctors suggested that I need to relocate to the south west. Is there any financial assistance for people who are disabled and need to relocate due to medical reasons? Please direct me to the appropriate office.Here was my answer.
I donít believe that the State of Arizona provides financial assistance for people to move here. I don't recall hearing of a state that provides monetary incentive for residents to come in. The state that you are leaving, however, may have some financial support for you, especially if you are receiving financial assistance in other ways from your state.
Once you are a resident in Arizona, of course, you may qualify for assistance programs here. To find out more about those, my advice is to contact Community Information & Referral. It is a nonprofit organization that helps people in Arizona by matching them with the organizations that will provide the help they are looking for. Besides the Web site, they also have a toll-free 24 hour hot line at 800-352-3792.
Finally, if you or your spouse are full-time employees or are self-employed on a full time basis, your moving expenses might be tax deductible. A tax professional could help you out with that.
