Advocate for Relief from CRIAC Fees at the Department of Energy and Environment Meeting
The Clean Rivers Impervious Area Charge (CRIAC) Relief Program for Nonprofit Organizations (CRIAC Nonprofit Relief Program) provides eligible nonprofits assistance in paying its CRIAC fees.
The CRIAC fees have increased significantly over the past ten years to pay for the large-scale combined sewer system infrastructure expansion necessary to reduce combined sewer overflows from contributing to the pollution in the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and their tributaries. The cost of this work has imposed a significant burden on nonprofit organizations that serve District residents, especially houses of worship and cemeteries.
The Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) will host two public meetings to present a full program overview of the proposed CRIAC Nonprofit Relief Program. The presentations will include program eligibility requirements, the application process, and the amount of relief available through the program.
