Pepco Energy Assistance
GWUL is in partnership with PEPCO to provide assistance to families needing assistance with their electric and gas bills. Through the program families can apply for up to $500 once per year to help pay for their utilities.
Water Bill Assistance
GWUL is in partnership with the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority (WASA), to help families pay their water bill during times of financial crisis. Through S.P.L.A.S.H. (Serving People by Lending A Supporting Hand), which is funded solely by contributions from the community and thoughtful WASA customers, residents can apply for assistance once during a program year and can receive up to $350.
How to Contribute to WASA:
If you want to contribute to the S.P.L.A.S.H. Program, check the “Round Up” box on your monthly water bill and your total will be rounded up to the next dollar amount. Money collected from the “round up” program goes into the S.P.L.A.S.H. Program.
How to Apply for Utility Assistance:
For information on getting assistance for your utilities call the GWUL offices during business hours Mon-Fri 9 AM – 5 PM.
