In a vote of 5-2, the Flint City Council passed a measure that will apply a $300 credit to every active water account in Flint.
The move has been debated since June and allocates $8.6 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding to make the credits possible.
Credits will be sent to all active accounts regardless of payment status.
The cost of water has gone up 320% in Flint over the last 40 years, according to a 2021 study funded by the Mott Foundation.
