LIHWAP Application Process Open

As we have previously shared, the Department of Community Affairs’ Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) application process is open. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded program will provide benefits directly to water and wastewater companies on behalf of residential customers. The assistance can be used, in order of priority, to:

  • Restore services where services have been terminated and pay reconnection fees and other charges accrued due to a disconnection,
  • Avoid service disruption for those residential customers who are in danger of disconnection (e.g., received shut off notices or have past due balances) and to help them afford bill payment going forward; and
  • Support those household customers who are current in their bills but might be in danger of falling behind in the near future.

 Priority will also be given to families with elderly or disabled household members and/or with children under the age of five, no matter which category they fall into.

Please review the Frequently Asked Questions for more information. We encourage you to share this information with your residents and community social service providers in your municipality.
