Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP)


The Vermont Department for Children and Families (DCF) launched the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) to help eligible households pay their water and wastewater bills. The program runs from November 2021 through September 2023.

Eligible households are those with gross household income below 60% of the state median income based on household size. Priority will be given to households whose water/wastewater has been disconnected or is at risk of being disconnected.
