If a household qualifies for the Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program, the Low-Income Housing Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) can help. This emergency federal program, operated through the Colorado Department of Human Services and part of the federal government’s response to the pandemic, helps residents pay their water and wastewater bills, avoid shut-offs and support reconnections related to non-payment.
For information on LIHWAP assistance and eligibility, including income requirements, visit cdhs.colorado.gov/Leap. The deadline to apply for assistance is May 1, 2023.
Denver Water also partners with the Mile High United Way 211 Help Center, which is a multilingual, confidential service connecting our community to vital resources. Find out if you qualify for hardship assistance by dialing 211, texting your ZIP code to 898-211 or visiting 211Colorado.org.
