If you lost your job or are working fewer hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic and you receive water, sewer and/or garbage services from the City of Marysville, here’s some financial help. The deadline to apply for a Marysville CARES Utility Assistance Grant has been extended to Friday, Nov. 20. We urge eligible customers to apply soon.
Utility assistance grants for a one-time of $200 toward their city utility bill ($100 for accounts that already have a discounted utility rate) are available to those who meet these criteria:
There is no longer an income limit for eligibility.
“As we head into the fall and winter season, we are glad to be able to continue to distribute CARES funding here in Marysville for basic needs like utilities,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “Even relatively small grants can make a big difference.”
Grant awards will end Nov. 30 or when the city has distributed the remaining $12,000 available for this program, whichever comes first. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
Federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) Act funding was distributed to cities through the State of Washington. The City of Marysville previously awarded other CARES funding through residential and business rent relief grants and financial support of local community services responding to the COVID pandemic.
