New Program: Water Assistance for Water and Wastewater Bills


Rhode Islanders at risk of losing their water and wastewater service may now get some bill-payment assistance through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).

LIHWAP can help pay for current or past due bills, prevent disconnection of water or wastewater services, and cover disconnection or reconnection fees.

Households must meet income guidelines:  News Release: Water Assistance Program

Potential recipients are urged to apply for LIHWAP assistance by visiting their local community action agency.
