Pasco utilities customers may be eligible to receive up to $1,000 in payment assistance for water and wastewater payments through a new federal program operated by Pasco County Utilities, according to a county news release.
The Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program offers up to a $1,000 voucher to those who qualify.
Eligibility is income-based, and funding is administered by Mid Florida Community Services (MFCS). If a customer is approved, MFCS will provide the voucher and funding directly to Pasco County Utilities.
“Customers experiencing financial crises are encouraged to connect with MFCS and contact Pasco County Utilities to set up a payment plan,” Utilities Customer Information & Services Director Sandra Anderson said, in the release. “Discussing a payment plan before services are disconnected provides an opportunity to continue services while addressing each customer’s unique circumstance.”
Those interested in apply can:
- Contact MFCS at 352-796-1425
- Download an application directly at FloridaJobs.org/LIHWAP
The program assists with the restoration of household water services and reduces delinquent or late payments for low-income households. The payment assistance will be available until Sept. 30, 2023, or until funding runs out.
