How can I receive money for my bills with Temporary Cash Assistance?

A new program worth $38 million dollars is being implemented by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. It will help families impacted by the pandemic.

The program will be referred to as the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program.

Residents struggling to pay their water bill can apply to the temporary cash assistance program.

The goal of the program is to keep running water for households in danger of losing it.

Tara Myers, NCDHHS deputy secretary for employment, inclusion and economic stability, stated that running water is a basic human need necessary for sanitation and good health.

How to qualify for the assistance

Households in North Carolina will automatically qualify for the program if their water is shut off or they’re in danger of it being shut off.

If you don’t meet the requirements but still think you need help, you can still apply.

Applications began Dec. 1.
