The Sanitary Sewer Tap Program assists qualified homeowners in paying Murfreesboro Water Resources Department sanitary sewer system connection fees. Funding comes from a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant. Assistance is in the form of a grant and is subject to the availability of CDBG funding budgeted for the Program. The level of Program assistance is based on household income. If the household income is classified as: Low income, the Program grant will be 75 percent of both the single-family connection fee and sewer cleanout fee, and up to $1,200 of the house service charge; Very low income, the Program grant will be 100 percent of both the single-family connection fee and sewer cleanout fee, and up to $1,600 of the house service charge;
The dwelling for which sanitary sewer tap fee assistance is provided must be an owner-occupied, single-family residence and be located within the corporate limits of Murfreesboro. The dwelling must not be on the market and homeowners must state their intent to reside in the home for at least one year after sanitary sewer is connected. Homeowner will be responsible for all related expenses not specifically listed in these policies and procedures.
