Water customers are urged to apply for LIHWAP before deadline.

Jersey Shore Area Joint Water Authority encourages customers in need to apply for new financial support through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) available now through Aug. 11.

Through LIHWAP, a temporary federal emergency water and wastewater assistance program, Pennsylvania homeowners or renters can receive up to $2,500 in benefits if their household income is below the state’s 2023 income guidelines: https://www.dhs.pa.gov/Services/Assistance/Pages/LIHWAP.aspx
