Low- to moderate-income Atlanta residents will receive free plumbing repairs through two grants worth $2.15 million from the city.
The City Council approved grant agreements with community outreach group Nehemiah Project Community Development, Inc. and environmental organization Southface Energy Institute at Monday’s meeting. The two organizations will conduct the repairs.
The grant funds come from the city’s water and sewer bill assistance program Care and Conserve, which helps with residents’ plumbing problems and installs water efficiency devices to help keep bills low. The program is funded using water and sewer revenue funds and is managed under the Department of Watershed Management.
The Nehemiah Project Community Development, Inc. and Southface Energy Institute will receive $1.2 million and $950,000, respectively.
