Water Assistance Program

The Water Assistance Program allows payment to be made towards outstanding water bill for Hennepin County residents whose income does not exceed 125% of the Federal Poverty Level (see chart below). Water and sewer utility bills, which are not payable through the Energy Assistance Program - are paid when the amount owed threatens housing stability. Housing stability is deemed threatened either by disconnection of those utilities, which could lead to eviction, or through attachment of a lien on the homeowners property, which could result in foreclosure.

Eligibility: 125% of the Federal Poverty Income Guideline
