H20 Help to Others Program helps families in need with water bill payments

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Especially during this season of giving, Kentucky American Water wants to remind customers and the community of an opportunity to help families in need by donating to the H20 Help to Others program. The program is administered for Kentucky American Water by Dollar Energy Fund in order to assist eligible customers in financial distress with their water bill payments.

The program is funded by donations from American Water shareholders and individuals. To make a donation, customers may add a contribution to their water bill payments, checking off the H20 Help to Others box on the back of their Kentucky American Water bill, or they may donate directly to the program via Dollar Energy Fund’s website at https://www.dollarenergy.org/donate/. When donating online, contributors should select “Kentucky Utility Assistance Program”.

Kentucky American Water customers eligible for H20 Help to Others Program assistance must have a total gross household income at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines, must have paid at least $25 toward their water bill in the previous 180 days and must have an outstanding balance of at least $50.
