"The Illinois Department on Aging's Circuit Breaker program provides grants to senior citizens and persons with disabilities to help them reduce the impact of taxes and prescription medications on their lives. When the costs of property taxes and prescription medicines begin to 'overload' our seniors and persons with disabilities, this program steps in to help, just as a circuit breaker prevents overloads in an electrical system."
