HELP FOR LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS WATER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (LIHWAP)
Pennsylvania has received additional water assistance funding from unspent funds from other LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLD WATER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (LIHWAP) grantees.
- These funds will be available to your low income customers who have an water arrearage, starting Monday, July 10th.
- Based on the limited funding we received, we anticipate that the program will close again 5 weeks later, on August 11, 2023.
- We will evaluate applications/expenditures each week to see if the program can remain open longer than that.
- Parameters for LIHWAP funding remain the same as before (per your LIHWAP vendor agreement).
Low income-income households, if income eligible, may receive one LIHWAP grant for drinking water and one LIHWAP grant for wastewater (based on having an arrearage). Each grant is based on the amount of the arrearage (minus current bill) up to a max of $2,500 per water type.
If a customer already received a water grant or drinking water grant since January 4, 2022 (in ANY amount), they are not eligible for additional LIHWAP funding for that SAME water type.
Sue Smith received a LIHWAP grant for drinking water for $1,200 in August 2022 but never received a LIHWAP grant for waste water. On July 10, 2023, she is in arrears for both grants (drinking water $800 and waste water $800, totaling $1600). If income eligible, Sue would be able to receive $800 for her wastewater arrears, but would NOT be eligible for a drinking water grant because she already received one when LIHWAP was open previously.
Here is the LIHWAP Application for those in arrears ON JULY 10th. Applications received prior to July 10th will be rejected. A google search for the customer’s County Assistance Office based on their county of residence will provide the address where a LIHWAP application can be mailed or dropped off on/after July 10th. Thank you –
