Households that receive benefits from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and need assistance with their water or wastewater bill(s) are automatically eligible for LIHWAP. However, these eligible households must submit a LIHWAP application.

LIHWAP water utility partners may still enroll

Water and wastewater utilities must be enrolled in the program to receive LIHWAP payments on behalf of customers. Utilities may still enroll after August 15. Please complete this short form to start the process.
