LIHWAP – Emergency Funding for Water Bill Assistance
The State of North Carolina has created the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). This is a federally-funded program that provides emergency assistance to low-income households, particularly those with the lowest incomes that pay a high proportion of household income for drinking water and wastewater services.
If interested in applying for these funds please contact Rowan County Department of Social Services at 704-216-8330, between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday- Friday and ask for the water assistance program. These funds are limited and Social Services is responsible for approval decisions.
