The Pennsylvania Lottery was established on August 26, 1971, by a legislative act, Title 91. Proceeds were initially targeted to provide property tax relief for the elderly in the Commonwealth. Since its introduction, program benefits funded by the Pennsylvania Lottery have expanded to include rent rebates,  free and reduced-fare transit for older Pennsylvanians, and reduced vehicle registration fees. The Pennsylvania Lottery is the only state lottery that exclusively targets it proceeds to benefit older citizens.
