Williamsburg, Va. - The City of Williamsburg will use federal aid under the CARES Act to assist eligible water and sewer customers.

According to a news release, the City of Williamsburg created the Municipal Utility Relief Program to help residents and small-business owners pay past-due utility bills from March 1 through Dec. 30 due to COVID-19.

The $92,027.49 in aid will go directly towards customer accounts over 30 days in arrears during the covered period; however, customers with accounts more than 60 days in arrears take first priority.

All utility customers with accounts over 30 days in arrears are encouraged to complete an intake certification form, which can be found online or at the Municipal Building at 401 Lafayette St., and then submit it to the City by Jan. 13, 2021.

Signed certification forms can be mailed to 401 Lafayette St., Williamsburg, VA 23185, emailed to water@williamsburgva.gov, or placed in the drop-box on the front of the Municipal Building.

Award amount notifications will be sent out the week of Jan. 18, 2021. For questions, call 757-220-6182.
