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.
