The advisable age is 6 months.

If there is real urgency, I think 4 months is also ok, but not earlier. 

With the pet over population being as it is more and more vets are altering cats and dogs as early as three months.  Having been a breeder of both I highly believe six months is the best time, but one has to make sure the animal does not come into heat before that and get bred.

If I am disabled and I have a female kitten that I would like to have fixed. Is there a program that would help me with the cost of having this done?

It might not be a sexual behavior. Cats sometimes lick each other and even mark territory with urine, even after neutering. Bear in mind too that the female cat is a lot younger, so the older cat probably wishes to ascertain seniority (and he should).
