Water Assistance

The Water Assistance Program allows payment to be made towards outstanding water bill for Hennepin County residents whose income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (see chart below). Water and sewer utility bills, which are not payable through the Energy Assistance Program - are paid when the amount owed threatens housing stability. Housing stability is deemed threatened either by the disconnection of those utilities, which could lead to eviction, or through the attachment of a lien on the homeowner's property, which could result in foreclosure.

Eligibility: 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Guideline
