Clean Rivers Impervious Area Charge Relief (CRIAC)

<<Back to Utility Affordability Programs

Over the past 10 years, the Clean Rivers Impervious Area Charge (CRIAC) rates have increased to help pay for a $2.7 billion project to significantly reduce the discharge of raw sewage and stormwater runoff in to the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and Rock Creek. The District recognizes these increases have imposed a burden on nonprofit organizations and many District households. The CRIAC Relief Programs provide financial relief to eligible nonprofits, renters, and homeowners, significantly reducing their CRIAC costs. You can find more information on the nonprofit and residential relief programs by following the below links:
