Water Fund / RoundUp Programs

Water Fund / RoundUp

The Water Fund was established in 1994 by WSSC Water 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 Water 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.)
