Department of Health and Human Services Releases First Water Affordability Report

The preliminary survey will guide the new federal water assistance program.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a report on water affordability this month, surveying utility rates, fees, and consistency throughout the United States. The report compiles data from over 1,800 water and wastewater providers, laying the groundwork to guide the department’s new Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).

“LIHWAP has met a critical need for households since its inception,” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. “The program has served as a lifeline for families to ensure one of the most basic needs – water – is available. The survey we’re releasing today demonstrates just how important water assistance is to individuals, children, families, and communities that HHS serves.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Becerra to receive God’s direction as he leads the Department of Health and Human Services.
  • For the president and members of the administration to be led by the Lord as they seek to manage the nation’s resources.
