NJ SHARES administers the New Jersey American Water (NJAW) H2O Help to Others Program.
Customers who qualify may receive a grant of up to $500 and/or a discount on their monthly fixed service charge. The Low-Income Payment Program (LIPP) is designed to assist New Jersey American Water’s most economically challenged customers. This aid can be equivalent to as much as 20% of a customer’s monthly bill, depending on eligibility.
For both programs, applicants must be 200% or below FPL, made a good faith payment of $100 within 90 days of applying, and be at risk of shutoff.
