Up to $2,000 available for San Diego County residents struggling to pay water bills
The San Diego County Water Authority has helped secure financial aid for low-income water customers in the region to cover overdue residential water and wastewater bills. The authority is partnering with the Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee on Anti-Poverty of San Diego County (MAAC) and Campesinos Unidos, Inc. for outreach and education to make residents who are struggling aware of the funding. The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is federally funded and offers one-time payments to cover outstanding residential water and/or wastewater bills. The federal government allocated $116 million to California to help qualified households with their water bills.
