The Water Assistance Program allows payment to be made towards outstanding water bill for Hennepin County residents whose income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Water and sewer utility bills, which are not payable through the Energy Assistance Program - are paid when the amount owed threatens housing stability. Housing stability is deemed threatened either by the disconnection of those utilities, which could lead to eviction, or through the attachment of a lien on the homeowner's property, which could result in foreclosure. priority will be given to senior citizens, disabled, or families with children under the age of 5. Households will be eligible for a one-time payment for unpaid water bills or sewer bills for the program duration.
