Water Fund / RoundUp Programs

Water Fund / RoundUp

RoundUpFinal.gifThe Water Fund was established in 1994 by WSSC employees to help residential customers who are experiencing financial hardship pay their water/sewer bills. It is funded through the generous donations of customers, community members and WSSC employees. The Salvation Army, in each county, administers the Water Fund.  One way we can all easily contribute is through the RoundUp program

The Salvation Army is responsible for determining whether applicants qualify for assistance. The maximum allowable annual award is $500 or less.

To apply, you must:

  • Receive water/sewer bills in your name;
  • Apply to the Salvation Army serving the county in which you reside;
  • Present picture identification; and
  • Supply proof your income falls within the established threshold. (This threshold is based on two times the federal poverty guidelines and family size.)

RoundUp

Sign up to RoundUp

WSSC’s RoundUp program offers customers a convenient way to contribute to the Commission’s Water Fund. The Water Fund helps our customers who are having a hard time paying their past due water and sewer bills. Customers can “round up” their bill payments to the nearest dollar; the extra change is donated to the Water Fund. Customers can sign up to have their bill automatically calculated with the “round up” or they can check the box on their bill to give a one-time RoundUp donation. Approximately 150 customers a year are helped by the Water Fund.
