Low Income Household Water Assistance Program
Households that have had their water services cut off or are in danger of being cut off can apply for assistance in paying their bill through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). LIHWAP is a temporary emergency program that will help eligible households and families afford water and wastewater services.
The program provides a one-time payment directly to the utility company. LIHWAP runs through September 2023 or until the funds run out.
The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is a federally-funded program that provides a one-time vendor payment to help eligible households pay their heating bills. Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2022, through March 31, 2022, or until funds are exhausted.
The Community Foundation offers scholarships that recognize academic or athletic achievement, respond to financial need, support field-of-study pursuits, and help build the next generation of community leaders. Scholarships range from one-time $1,000 awards up to renewable awards of $10,000 every year for four years.
