NJ SHARES Municipal Customer Assistance Program (MCAP) provides water, sewer and electric assistance grants to income qualified households experiencing a temporary financial crisis.

Eligibility is based on household size and income.

Households who have municipal utility services and have income at or below 400% of the Federal Poverty Level can receive up to $200 per utility per calendar year.

Grants will be used for consumption charges only–not for deposits, reconnection fees, repairs, etc. All grant payments are issued directly to the utility company on the customer’s behalf and no customer will receive a credit balance.
