Aid Is Available For NJ Families Struggling To Pay Water, Sewer Bills

“Thousands of New Jersey families account for about $200 million in overdue water and sewer bills, putting them at risk of water shutoffs or even loss of their homes,” said Larry Levine, director of urban water infrastructure at the Natural Resources Defense Council.

“Many of these families are eligible for grants to pay off those bills, under the state’s federally-funded water assistance program, and water utilities must encourage customers to apply as soon as possible,” Levine said. “This funding expires next year, and the state should commit to ongoing funding for the New Jerseyans who struggle to afford basic water service.”
