In Deep Water? PA’s Water Assistance Program is Here to Help

Funding continues to be available for eligible individuals and families in Pennsylvania experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). This assistance can aid in maintaining households’ access to drinking and wastewater services essential to ongoing health and overall wellbeing.

Program funds are issued directly to the service providers in the form of grants, or crisis grants depending on situation severity. To qualify for the program, participants must either rent or own their home, have overdue water bills, and meet program income guidelines.

The Department of Human Services (DHS) developed a media toolkit to assist in the awareness of the Water Assistance program within the commonwealth. Below are example social media posts. Additional social media images, newsletter text, and flyer text are available on the DHS website.  Click here to apply!
