[ARCHIVED] Senior Water Rebate Program

Senior Rebate Icon

Senior Water Rebate Applications will be accepted September 1, 2021 until September 30, 2021.  The Senior Water Rebate Program was passed by City Council in 2018 to provide relief for qualified applicants affected by the water rate increases also approved in 2018.  The full resolution may be found here.

Rebate Criteria

The Water & Sewer account associated with the rebate must be in good standing at the time of the application. Customers with past due accounts, or those on a payment plan, shall not qualify for the program.

The Homeowner must provide a copy of their current property tax bill associated with the rebate as having one of the following property tax exemptions for the current property tax year: Senior Homestead Exemption, Senior Citizen’s Assessment Freeze, Returning Veteran’s Exemption, Homestead Exemption for Disabled Persons, Disabled Veteran’s Standard Homestead Exemption, or Disabled Veterans Exemption.

The rebate will be calculated as 33% of amounts paid by the customer only for those months that minimum usage billing was charged from January to December of year prior to the application being made. For example, applications made in September 2021 will cover January to December 2020. Any months where amounts in excess of the minimum usage charge were applied will not be eligible for rebate. Late fees or other penalties are not subject to rebate.

Applications for the rebate shall only be made or accepted during the month of September for the immediately preceding year. Such application shall be made in written form, only upon forms provided by the City of Waukegan. Once the rebate application window has closed, no additional applications will be considered for that year’s program.
