West Virginia DHHR is offering a new program available to low-income households. The West Virginia Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) will offer assistance to eligible households with services that have been disconnected or are pending disconnection. These eligible households may receive up to $1,000 when water and sewage is included in the same bill, or $500 towards the payment of each of their water and sewage bills when services are billed separately. Eligible households seeking assistance that have current bills with no past due balance may receive up to $500 when their water and sewage is included in the same bill, or $250 towards the payment of each when the services are billed separately. Payments will be paid by voucher. A one-time payment is made during a fiscal year period and the payment cannot create a credit balance. LIHWAP will be available until September 30, 2023.
