Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program
The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is a temporary emergency program to help low-income families pay overdue water bills. LIHWAP is a grant. You do not have to repay it.
LIHWAP crisis grants may be available if you have an emergency situation and are in jeopardy of losing your water service. You can receive one crisis grant for your drinking water service and one crisis grant for your wastewater service, up to $2,500 each.
Crisis situations include:
- Past-due water bills
- Termination of utility service
- Danger of having utility service terminated (received a notice that service will be shut off within the next 60 days).
