Water Bill Assistance Program Announced by Passaic Valley Water Commission
Passaic Valley Water Commission (PVWC) announced it has partnered with the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and will participate in the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).
The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program is a federally funded program to help low-income households reduce the balances on their residential water bills.
To be eligible for LIHWAP benefits, applicants must be responsible for their own water bill and have a gross income that falls at or below 60% of the NJ State Median Income Level. Funds will be provided directly to PVWC, on behalf of the residential customer.
“At the Passaic Valley Water Commission, we understand that the global Covid-19 pandemic placed burdens on families mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Department of Community Affairs and will participate in the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program,” said Jim Mueller, the commission’s executive director.
