Water Amnesty Program Ends April 30th!

March 10, 2023

This one-time-only effort is to help New Yorkers who have fallen behind on their water bills catch up.  The program is a 100% forgiveness of accrued interest if they pay all or part of their outstanding debt and enter into a payment agreement.

The New York City Water Board authorized the amnesty program and will only run until April 30, 2023.  This program is especially important for low-income homeowners who may be eligible for debt forgiveness if they have already participated in New York State’s Low Income Homeowner Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).

DEP is offering up to an additional $30 million to assist these homeowners with forgiveness of up to $5,000 of their remaining delinquent balances. DEP wants to ensure that low-income homeowners have applied for both programs so that they can qualify for the maximum funds available.

To receive amnesty and confirm eligibility, or for more information, customers should visit DEP’s water amnesty website or call (718) 595-7000.
