Water bill assistance program benefits Mississippi families
Jan 26, 2022
Thousands of Mississippians won’t have to worry about providing water to their families through a new program from the Mississippi Department of Human Services.
The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) has received $13 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to help income-eligible residents maintain access to drinking water and wastewater services through the end of September 2023.
This important resource provides financial assistance to eligible households in managing costs associated with water bills, wastewater/sewer bills, stormwater fees, groundwater fees, reconnection fees, late fees and water-related lien removal fees.
