Advocates push to extend low-income housing water assistance program
NORFOLK, Va. — There's a call to extend a program designed to help people struggling to pay their water and wastewater bills.
The Low Income Housing Water Assistance Program, or LIHWAP, is a temporary, federally funded program to assist people living below the poverty line and behind on their payments.
The initiative launched in October 2022, and is set to expire in September 2023, or until the funds are depleted.
