The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) has introduced a Customer Assistance Program (CAP) to help seniors afford their sewer bills. The problem is that the program MSD is offering has qualification requirements that are too restrictive and the discount is too small.

Further, Communities United For Action views it as a conflict-of-interest for MSD to administer the program.

The Hamilton County Commissioners are holding a public hearing to get feedback about the program February 19th @ 6:00 PM. Come to the hearing and sign the petition below to support CUFA's written comments. 

Here is the language that Communities United For Action will deliver to the Hamilton County Commissioners along with petition signatures: 


The Customer Assistance Program for seniors offered by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) is too restrictive, will lack adequate oversight and doesn't offer enough of a discount. Please make the following modifications to the program: 

  • Increase the discount rate from 20% to 40%
  • Include renters in the program
  • Make the income requirement 175% of the poverty level
  • Have the program administered by a third party, not in-house at MSD 
  • Do not require seniors to qualify every year


Thank you for considering our comments. Please notify Communities United For Action and petition supporters of improvements you are making to the program.
