Senior Program

The City of Issaquah offers a discount rate for qualifying low income senior residents. The program offers financial assistance as a 75% discount off the minimum water, sewer and solid waste (Recology) billings for qualifying senior residents. It also excludes you from paying the stormwater fee.

If you don’t qualify for the low income senior discount, be sure to check our full list of other discount and rebate programs.

How to Apply:

You may submit your application form and supporting documents either electronically via email to; by placing the printed and signed documents in the payments drop box at 130 E Sunset Way; or by mail to:

City of Issaquah Utility Billing
PO Box 1307
Issaquah, WA 98027


To qualify for the program, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Age: At least one of the residents in the house must be 62 years old or older.
  2. Income: Your total annual household income, from all sources, must be less than $58,400 (IMC 13.92.010). Sources include wages, salaries and tips, Social Security benefits, business income, interest and dividends, pension and annuity receipts, governmental assistance, and IRA withdrawals
  3. Residence: You must own or rent a single family residence in the City of Issaquah AND have an approved Statement of Responsibility. Duplexes are billed at a different rate than a single family residence and therefore do not meet the qualifications for this program.
