Connecticut Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) Information

The Connecticut Department of Social Services, along with their community action agency partners, is accepting applications through June 30 for the state’s first Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program.

Get help paying your water bills. Households with annual income at or below 60 percent of the state median income can qualify for this one-time water assistance benefit. There is no asset limit. Help is available for both drinking water and wastewater bills. If you receive benefits from the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program, SNAP, TFA, SSI, State Supplement, or Refugee Cash, then you likely meet income requirements.
