Water Bill Assistance Available for Renters and Landlords
Renters and landlords who are behind on their water bills may be eligible for emergency assistance.
The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility says the Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance Program is available for renters who have fallen behind on their water and sewer bills due to the impact of Covid-19.
In a release, the utility says the state’s Housing & Community Development Authority will pay overdue utility bills, up to 12 months past due, incurred after April 1, 2020 for qualifying renters.
The local water and sewer utility says it’s contacting customers with delinquent accounts who have signed up for payment arrangements to notify them of the new assistance program.
Renters and landlords can learn more and apply for the help by calling 2-1-1.
The information is available in both English and Spanish.
