LIHWAP Eligibility from CSD.PNG

​Your household may qualify if:

  • ​Your total household gross income is at or below 60% of the State Median Income (see table) or a household member is a current recipient of CalFresh or CalWORKs;
  • You have a past due amount on your water or wastewater bill;
  • ​You receive service from a community water system or wastewater treatment provider (private wells and septic excluded); and 
  • Your water or wastewater system has enrolled in the program. ​​​
  • Renters: If your water and/or wastewater bill is included in your rental payment you may still qualify for LIHWAP if you are past due on rent. The application will require an additional step: you must complete an agreement with your landlord to apply the benefit amount.
