The Low Income Sewer Utility Credit Program is modeled after the State of Michigan's Low Income Energy Assistance program. It is designed to help low income homeowners pay their sewage fees. Through the program, eligible homeowners can claim a credit that enables them to receive up to a $60 credit if their sewer bill exceeds 2% of their household income.
However, only qualified low income and residential homeowners are eligible to participate in the program. Likewise, homeowners have to be using the City of Lansing's sewer system to be considered. Income eligibility is patterned after the most recently available income guidelines used in the State of Michigan Home Heating Credit.
