We know that many families in our community have been hit with financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since April 1, the number of OWASA customers with accounts past due has risen by 73 percent. We anticipate customers will continue to struggle to make ends meet as a result of the pandemic. The longer the crisis lasts, the harder it will be for families to keep up with their everyday bills.
Your gift to Care to Share, our community’s water bill assistance program, helps to make sure that no one in our community will have to go without water – or scrimp on medications or food to pay their water bill.
Care to Share funds are administered by the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (IFC) in partnership with OWASA.
Clean water is critical to fighting this pandemic. On top of everything else, no one should have to worry about going without water to wash hands, bathe, and do laundry.
Please give generously to Care to Share today, if you are able.
Funds are administered by the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (IFC), a non-profit agency supporting the community since 1963.
Because IFC is a 501(c)(3) charity and OWASA is a public agency, donations may be deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
Unfortunately, State law forbids OWASA from reducing rates or directly providing bill assistance to low-income customers. All our customers must be charged for our costs to serve them.
No. Care to Share funds may only be used to help customers in need pay their water and wastewater bill.
No. Your full donated amount goes directly to help others pay their water bill.
