Water and Sewer Financial Assistance Act (HB 0414)
Established a low-income water and sewer assistance payment program housed in the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, prioritizing low-income households with the highest water burden, as well as those over 60, with additional priority to households with children and people with disabilities. The Act created the Water and Sewer Low-income Assistance Fund in the State Treasury. The Fund may receive donations from individuals, corporations and the federal government, but is primarily funded through a charge imposed on customers by participating water and sewer providers.
