City of Marysville utility customers facing financial difficulty related to the COVID-19 pandemic are urged to apply for a Marysville CARES Utility Assistance Grant.
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:
- Are a current City of Marysville utility customer,
- Are economically impacted by COVID-19, and
- Current total monthly household income is below these amounts (2019 HUD guidelines):
|# in household||Monthly income||# in household||Monthly income|
|1 person||$3,229||5 persons||$4,983|
|2 persons||$3,692||6 persons||$5,354|
|3 persons||$4,154||7 persons||$5,721|
|4 persons||$4,613||8 persons||$6,092|
“We are grateful to be able to distribute CARES funding locally for basic needs like utilities,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “Even relatively small grants can make a big difference in this difficult season.”
The application period closes Oct. 23. We urge eligible customers to apply soon.
Grant awards will end Oct. 31 or when the city has distributed the $25,000 allocated for this program, whichever comes first. Applications will be 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.
