There’s good news for residents and business owners in Williamsburg.
The application deadline for the city’s Municipal Utility Relief Program has been expanded to Dec. 1.
This relief program helps residents and small-business owners pay overdue water and sewer bills more than 30 days in arrears between March 1, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2021, according to the city’s news release.
“The funds in this program can be used only to relieve past-due water and sewer bills; no other utility bills are eligible,” according to a statement from the news release. “The grant prioritizes assistance to customers with accounts more than 60 days in arrears.”
Applications will be accepted until Dec. 1, or until the funds are exhausted.
In December 2020, Williamsburg received $92,027.49 from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and is using this money to fund the relief program.
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 city’s Municipal Building at 401 Lafayette St.
Signed certification forms can be mailed to 401 Lafayette St., Williamsburg, VA 23185, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or placed in the drop-box on the front of the Municipal Building.
For questions, call 757-220-6182.
