Due to delays in USPS mail delivery, the deadline for utility assistance mail-in applications has been extended through 4:30 pm on Friday, January 15th. This extension is for mail-in applications only. Mail-in applications should be submitted by mail or dropped off at the City of Petersburg Billing & Collections drop box, ATTENTION: Utility Relief Assistance at 144 N. Sycamore Street, Petersburg, VA 23803 by Friday, January 15th.
Applications received by Friday, January 15th, will be added to the total application pool and considered for utility relief funding. Please note that all award notifications will now be delayed due to this change, and awardees should expect a notice no later than February 1, 2021. Assistance will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis based on established program criteria and submitted application completeness/accuracy.
Please note, this program only covers City utilities (water and sewer); this program does not cover utility bills from other entities, such as Dominion Power.
To ensure efficient processing and review of all applications, we ask that if you have already submitted an online or hard copy application, please disregard the mailing and do not apply again.
