What we do
LIHWAP provides financial help to eligible
Californians for their residential water utility bills.
Check eligibility for LIHWAP and The California Department of Community Services and
Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP)
We provide financial help to eligible Fresno County residents for their residential water utility bills. The program gives a one-time benefit up to $2,000 for an eligible, low-income customer’s water or wastewater bill.
The California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) has begun the enrollment process for water and wastewater systems across the state. For your customers to be eligible for the program, your water provider/water company must enroll in LIHWAP Direct Pay through CSD’s direct payment coordinator, HORNE. Eligible customers will still need to apply to receive a LIHWAP benefit.
If your water or wastewater system received money from the State Water Control Board’s Water and Wastewater Arrearage Payment Program, your customers are still eligible and encouraged to apply for LIHWAP assistance.
