Low-income residents can apply for the federal program to pay for their water and sewer bills. The deadline to apply for the LIHWAP assistance is December 31.

LIHWAP program helps eligible households from November through September.

Brent Angel from Northeast Community Action Corporation said, “NECAC is here to help; it’s what we do,” he said. “There are other agencies in Northeast Missouri, Southeast Iowa, and West Central Illinois that can help. So, do apply and do contact us to find out what’s available through utility and water assistance.”

Another program is the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program which provides a time payment option for heating and cooling costs from October through the following May.

The assistance will be for past due and current bills, disconnection, and reconnection fees.

Engel said, “We want to make sure that they know about this program so that they can apply and receive assistance because it’s one of the best ways to save money, especially during the winter”.

LIHWAP (Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program) offers eligible residents a one-time payment to assist with water or sewer bills, covering the period from November to the following September, with a maximum amount of $750.
