Solid Waste Fee Grant Relief Program

Your application for Real Estate Tax Exemption will automatically be used to determine your eligibility for relief from paying a portion of your solid waste fees. Therefore, if you file for a Real Estate Tax Exemption, it will not be necessary for you to take any action or file a separate application for the Solid Waste Fee Grant Relief Program.

However, if you do not plan to apply for Real Estate Tax Exemption, you must separately apply for the Solid Waste Relief by contacting the City of Newport News Call Center at 757-933-2311.

The Real Estate Tax Exemption Program and the Solid Waste Fee Grant Program have different income guidelines.

You will be notified of approval via letter mailed to you in October of each year.
