          5. a. A county, regional or municipal utilities authority shall establish within its rates or schedules a 50\% reduction in the connection fee or tapping fee assessed pursuant to section 21 of P.L.1957, c.183 (C.40:14B-21) for new connections to the water system and a 50\% reduction in the connection fee or tapping fee assessed pursuant to section 22 of P.L.1957, c.183 (C.40:14B-22) for new connections to the sewerage system which are to be charged to public housing authorities, to non-profit organizations building affordable housing projects, and to any other affordable housing, including affordable housing units in inclusionary projects.

b. For units previously connected to the authority's system that were demolished or refurbished to allow for new affordable housing units and for which a connection fee was previously paid, a county, regional or municipal utilities authority shall establish within its rates or schedules a credit against the connection fee or tapping fee to be assessed for connection with the water system or the sewerage system to public housing authorities, non-profit organizations building affordable housing projects, and to any other affordable housing, including affordable housing units in inclusionary projects. The credit shall be the connection fee or tapping fee previously assessed and paid for connection with the water system or the sewerage system for units previously connected to the authority's system.

c. The connection fee or tapping fee assessable against a public housing authority, non-profit organization, or other affordable housing owner, for units previously connected to the authority's system that were demolished or refurbished to allow for new affordable housing units, including affordable housing units in inclusionary projects, shall be the lesser of the reduced rate provided for in subsection a. of this section, or the current non-reduced rate applicable to other types of housing developments minus the credit provided under subsection b. of this section for units for which a connection fee or tapping fee was previously paid, provided that said public housing authority, non-profit organization, or other affordable housing owner can establish the connection fee or tapping fee was previously assessed and paid for connection with the system. If the same cannot be established, the reduced rate provided for in subsection a. of this section shall be assessed.
