Alexandrians struggling to pay their sewer bill might have some relief next year.

AlexRenew, the city’s wastewater authority, said in a release it’s launching a charity-funded emergency bill assistance program called Lifeline Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP).

“Beginning this spring, the program will provide emergency bill assistance for eligible AlexRenew residential customers who are having difficulty paying their sewer bill,” AlexRenew said in a release. “AlexRenew has partnered with Dollar Energy Fund — a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that specializes in utility assistance — to administer the program.”

The utility company said the program will be funded initially through donations made by organizations and community members helping neighbors in need cover the cost of their bills.

“We believe this is an important initiative for our customers,” AlexRenew’s general manager and CEO Justin Carl said in the release. “Wastewater utilities are essential to people’s everyday lives, and the LEAP program is one way we can help ensure customers have access to this vital resource.”
