Water Payment Assistance

The City Payment Center produces and mails water bills weekly and services over 39,000 water accounts. For various reasons, a resident may have trouble paying water bills. 

Low Income Housing Water Assistance (New York State)

If a resident is having trouble paying water bills, they may qualify for a grant through the Low Income Housing Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). Because the program is a grant, it does not need to be repaid if certain criteria are met. The program is managed through New York State. 

To learn if you qualify, visit the New York State LIHWAP website. 

What if I don’t qualify for LIHWAP?
