Federal program provides financial assistance for water bills

Federal program provides financial assistance for water bills

Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County (CAPSBC) is offering eligible San Bernardino County households assistance with their water and/or wastewater bills.

The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is a federally-funded program offering eligible households a one-time payment, up to $2,000, to pay for current or past-due water/wastewater bills accrued over any timeframe.

LIHWAP assistance is provided in the form of a credit on your water bill. Credits are paid out directly to the water companies.

Your household may qualify if:

  • your total household gross income is at or below 60% of the State Median Income or a household member is a current recipient of CalFresh or CalWORKs;
  • You receive service from a participating community water system or wastewater treatment provider (private wells and septic excluded);
  • Renters may also qualify if your water and/or wastewater bill is included in your rental payment, and you are past due on rent.

Interested parties may request a mailed application packet by calling (909) 723-1526 or e-mailing [email protected]. Applications must be submitted by Dec. 15, 2023.
