Water assistance program opens up to help low-income Pennsylvanians retain service
Low-income Pennsylvanians who are in danger of having their water or wastewater services terminated now have a place to turn for assistance.
The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and Public Utility Commission on Monday announced the launch of the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program to help qualified individuals maintain drinking and wastewater services. Applications for this program open on Tuesday.“Access to clean drinking water and wastewater services that keep our homes safe are important to our daily lives and a family’s ongoing health and wellbeing,” said Human Services Acting Secretary Meg Snead. “I encourage all Pennsylvanians who are at risk of losing these essential services to apply as soon as possible when the water assistance program opens on January 4.”
