Both are working to educate customers about their Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).
The program is a “temporary, federally-funded assistance program” that helps low-income families with their water and/or sewer bills.
Customers can receive a one-time grant of up to $750 toward their bills including disconnection or reconnection fees, the threat of disconnection, past due bills, and current bills.
Only 1,100 people across the state have utilized this program for their water bills. MSD has seen roughly 4,000 people use this program for their sewer bills. The program will continue to September 2023.
