Arlington Co. to Help Residents Pay Utility Bills Amid Pandemic

Residents of Arlington County, Virginia, who have problems paying their utility bills amid the coronavirus pandemic can apply for assistance under the county’s now Utility Relief program.

Customers have until Jan. 15 to apply for the program, which is funded with a $383,000 grant from the state, WTOP reported.

The program is designed for utility customers whose water and sewer bills have an outstanding balance that has accrued since March 1.

The grant’s funds will first go to customers with outstanding balances 60 days or more, WTOP reported. Leftover funds will be for customers who are in arrears for at least 30 days.

Arlington County estimates over 3,000 utility accounts are past due and could qualify for the program.

The county has until Jan. 29 to either spend the grant money or return it to the state, WTOP reported.
