Grant Opportunity for Morristown Residents
St. Lawrence County is operating a grant program that will assist homeowners to repair or replace their failing septic systems. In Morristown, this Septic System Replacement Program is limited to assisting homes located along Rt. 6 on Black Lake, and along the St. Lawrence River. The Septic System Replacement Program can also assist vacation homes. This Program will pay 50% of the cost of approved repairs/replacement (up to a maximum of $10,000 in assistance; total project would cost $20,000 or more). This program is not limited by income; anyone may apply.
There is another grant program (funds will be available later in the spring) that will assist low-income households to repair or replace their failing septic systems. This program is funded by the NYS Community Development Block Grant Program. This CDBG program will provide grants to low-income households who live along Black Lake or along the St. Lawrence River, who otherwise could not afford to pay for 50% of replacing their septic system. This CDBG program can also be used by other low-income households in Morristown to repair or replace failing septic systems, even if they do not live on Black Lake Road, or along the St. Lawrence River.
To apply for either of these programs, please contact the North Country Housing Council, Inc., at 315-386-8576

Please come and help develop priorities for the Plan and determine the future of Morristown
