Customer Assistance Program (CAP)



Low-Income Water Assistance Program (LIWAP)

If you are behind on your water bill, you may qualify for the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). The program offers income-qualifying customers up to $15,000  to help pay off an outstanding water and/or sewer bill. The program may even help lower the cost of future bills. Customers who are behind on their bills and are currently receiving support from programs like CalFresh and CalWorks or are enrolled in SDGE’s CARE program should apply. 

The program is administered by the Community Action agency of Butte County, Inc. Apply online or call them at 530-712-2600
