Pennsylvania American Water is hosting a series of virtual information sessions about its customer assistance programs.
Representatives from PA American Water and the company’s H2O Help to Others program administrator, Dollar Energy Fund, will provide information about the company’s H2O Help to Others Program, which offers financial assistance for income-eligible customers, including grants of up to $500 per year, discounts on monthly water and wastewater charges, and water-saving devices and education.
The company will also explain how all customers – regardless of income – can set up payment arrangements, sign up for budget billing, and reduce water usage to lower their monthly bills.
“We look forward to offering these live information sessions to help our customers navigate our different assistance programs,” said Laura Martin, Director of Communications and External Affairs at Pennsylvania American Water. “Understanding the unique financial challenges COVID-19 has created for some customers, our hope is to help eliminate any barriers preventing customers in need from applying for assistance.”
Pennsylvania American Water recently informed customers that it was extending its suspension of water service shut offs until April 2021.
However, the company is urging customers who are facing financial hardships to not wait to seek assistance until a shutoff is looming and is conducting additional outreach to encourage participation in its assistance programs.
