Low Income Sewer Utility Credit Program

The Low Income Sewer Utility Credit Program is modeled on the State’s Low Income Energy Assistance program. It is designed to help low income homeowners pay their sewage fees. Eligible homeowners can claim a credit and receive up to a $60 credit if their sewer bill exceeds 2% of their household income.

Only qualified low income residential homeowners using the City of Lansing’s sewer system are eligible to participate in this program. Income eligibility is patterned after the most recently available income guidelines used in the State of Michigan Home Heating Credit.

To see if you are eligible for the credit, please visit the Treasury & Income Tax Office page.
