The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services says more than $150,000 in past due water bills owed by Benton Harbor residents have been paid for through the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program.

With that, the accounts of nearly 240 eligible families have been brought up to date.

Additional resources are still available to assist families in paying their utility bills.

To qualify for LIHWAP, account holders must:

  • Be a residential account.
  • Be in arrears or disconnect status.
  • Be under 150% Federal Poverty Limit and/or actively receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Food Assistance Program/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, State Emergency Relief or Social Security Supplemental Income
