Low Income Household Water Assistance Program

The Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is an emergency water assistance program to assist families experiencing hardship with their water bills. The Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is a new program providing benefits for water and wastewater costs for low-income households. LIHWAP will assist Maryland families who are behind on their drinking water and wastewater bills focusing on accounts that are 30 days or more past due. LIHWAP is still in the development phase in Maryland. Please check back in early 2022 for more information.
