A calculator rests on a desk.

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 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.
