How often can I apply for assistance from LIHWAP?

Households can apply only once per program year, which ends June 30, 2022.  If funds remain in LIHWAP on July 1, 2022, the program will continue and households can again request water bill-pay assistance. 

LIHWAP does not have a permanent or ongoing statutory authorization or appropriation beyond the current federal funding.  The full appropriations language from both the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act are available on the OCS website.
