Allegheny County COVID-19 Utility Assistance Program

Utility assistance may be available for Pennsylvania American Water customers living in Allegheny County through the Allegheny County COVID-19 Utility Assistance Program. The program provides utility bill payment assistance to residential customers (homeowners and renters) who are facing higher, or outstanding, water and wastewater bills due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

If COVID-19 impacted your household income, program funds might cover outstanding costs for your Pennsylvania American Water bill that you incurred after April 1, 2020 through July 2021.

Assistance will not be provided to applicants for amounts that have already been paid directly by, or are pending payment, by the applicant or by any other federal, state, or local sources. Eligible applicants include:
