[ARCHIVED] Water, Sewer Relief Funds Extended Through 2021

The City of Williamsburg has extended its application deadline for the Municipal Utility Relief Program to Dec. 1, 2021.

This relief program aims to help residents and small-business owners facing past-due water and sewer bills by providing direct assistance to customer accounts over 30 days in arrears during the covered period of March 1, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2021. The funds in this program can be used only to relieve past-due water and sewer bills; no other utility bills are eligible. The grant prioritizes assistance to customers with accounts more than 60 days in arrears.

This funding can be awarded only once per household (for residential) or once per account holder and their successors (for nonresidential). Disbursements will be made until the funds are depleted.

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 1, 2021, or until the funds are exhausted. The City is funding this program with the $92,027.49 in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act money it received in December 2020.

All utility customers with accounts over 30 days in arrears are encouraged to complete an intake certification form, which can be found online or in the entryway of the Municipal Building at 401 Lafayette St. Signed certification forms can be mailed to 401 Lafayette St., Williamsburg, VA 23185 or emailed to, or placed in the drop-box on the front of the Municipal Building.
