Aqua Pennsylvania Reminds Low-Income Families There Is Help To Pay Water Bills

Aqua Pennsylvania is reminding customers that its Helping Hand Assistance Program is available to low-income families who find it difficult to pay their water bills.
The Helping Hand program is multi-faceted, offering customers a payment plan to pay down arrears and ensure their water isn’t turned off; an opportunity for customers who make payments on time to earn a monthly credit toward their arrears; and a conservation kit to help customers curb usage and therefore, reduce their bills.
The conservation kit includes leak-detection tablets, a low-flow shower head, low-flow aerators for kitchen faucets, and more. Customers who reduce their usage are also reducing their bills.
Interested customers can call Aqua at 877-987-2782 to find out if they qualify for Helping Hand. Aqua will refer eligible customers to a local agency to apply.
Aqua uses the following requirements to determine eligibility:
— The customer’s household income is less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level;
— the account is more than 21 days past due; and
— the customer has at least $110 in unpaid water bills.
Customers who wish to contribute to the Helping Hand program may also call Aqua at 877-987-2782.
