Water Assistance

CDHS (Colorado Department of Human Services) received additional funding from federal government to assist low income households with their water services.  LIHWAP was created to provide a benefit to qualifying household to help reconnect their disconnected drinking water or waste/sewer services, or help the household if facing disconnection with their drinking water and waste/sewer services, or if they have a past due amount with their drinking water and waste/sewer services.  Funds are limited and are on a first come first serve basis.  

To qualify for this assistance, the household must meet these criteria:
- Be approved for LEAP during November 1, 2021 - April 30, 2022
- Complete the addendum within the LEAP application and submit a copy of your water bill.
- Must pay drinking water services and/or waste/sewer services directly to a water vendor. 
- Services must be in disconnected, facing disconnection, or have a past due amount on the bill.

For households whose water services are included in their rent, have group metering, or pay through their property management/landlord, please refer to the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) https://cdola.colorado.gov/rental-mortgage-assistance
