Utility Billing Relief
In partnership with the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County (CEDA), the City of Chicago is launching the Utility Billing Relief Program, intended to make water, sewer, and water-sewer tax bills more affordable for qualifying Chicago residents!
Participants will receive:
50% rate reduction for water charges, sewer charges, and water-sewer tax.
No shut off, penalties, or debt collection on City of Chicago utility billing debt.
Debt forgiveness after successfully completing one full year in the program.
Your Chicago utility bill is for a single-family home or two-flat and is your primary residence, and you meet the household income qualifications, increased beginning July 27, 2020 to at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.
Check if your property qualifies by entering the account number from your bill and UBeaR will find it for you.
