The City of Bellevue has two programs to help low–income persons living within the service area of Bellevue Utilities. Check below to see if you qualify for one or both programs. For more information, please call 425-452-5285.
Utility Rate Relief
The city offers low–income seniors (62 and older) and low–income permanently disabled persons relief on their utility costs for water, wastewater and drainage.
Rate Relief offers up to 75 percent off utility costs for seniors and permanently disabled persons who meet specific residency and income guidelines.
Applications for this program will be available after February 1, 2016
Utility Tax Relief
Bellevue’s Tax Relief Program offers a year-end rebate check for a portion of the Utility Occupation Taxes paid to the city. This program is open to persons living in the service area of Bellevue Utilities that meet low–income guidelines. For complete program guidelines and application, see 2015 Utility Tax Relief Application Packet.
Applications must be received by City of Bellevue Utilities at downtown Bellevue City Hall by 4:00 p.m., PST, on Thursday, November 19th, 2015. Applicants are encouraged to apply early because the application process can take 6-8 weeks to complete. Late or incomplete applications cannot be processed.
