Laurel, Md. – August 28, 2023 –WSSC Water recently distributed $3.75 million to 4,350 income-constrained customers throughout Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to help pay past-due water and sewer bills incurred between January 27, 2020, and September 30, 2022. The average grant received by customers was $863.36. Funding enabled WSSC Water to restore water service for 377 vulnerable customers. Letters have been mailed to all grant recipients. 

The grant is from Maryland’s COVID-19 State and Local Relief Fund award under the American Rescue Plan Act. The distribution of funds continues WSSC Water’s extensive efforts to assist customers financially impacted by the pandemic. Since March 2020, WSSC Water has provided more than $10.2 million in financial assistance to more than 5,500 customers thanks to various federal and state programs.

“We know the financial impacts of COVID-19 continue to this day, which is why these funds are crucial to ensuring our income-constrained customers have the resources necessary to keep our safe, clean water flowing to their taps,” said WSSC Water General Manager and CEO Kishia L. Powell. “I thank Governor Wes Moore’s administration for providing this money and our Commissioners, especially Commission Vice Chair T. Eloise Foster, for helping us secure funds that complement our strong portfolio of assistance programs.”

Today, Maryland also increased funding available through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program for overdue water bills – from $2,000 to $10,000. Act now: applications will be accepted through September 30, 2023.
