Household Water Assistance
Great Northern Services will have two assistance programs that can help with past-due water and wastewater bills available this year. The CDBG-CV Subsistence Program is available now and can help with up to $900 in utility costs. Clients who have larger past-due amounts than the Subsistence Program can cover will be able to apply for the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) starting in May 2022.
