You May Qualify for a Grant to Repair or Replace Your Private Sewer Lateral
The City is accepting applications for the 2023-2024 fiscal year. Read below to find out which application would best suit your sewer lateral needs.
The City of Morgan Hill is offering two cost assistance options in the form of grant opportunities for property owners to repair sewer lateral lines.
All grant funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis until all funds have been exhausted.
A grant must be approved and a Letter of Approval from the City of Morgan Hill must be received by the property owner BEFORE any construction work begins. All sewer lateral construction work done before grant approval is ineligible for funding.
