Water Assistance Program (WAP) & Wastewater Assistance Program (WWAP)
The City of Charlottesville has both Water and Wastewater Assistance Programs to provide eligible households help in paying water and sewer bills. Customers must meet income and resource guidelines which may be obtained from the Utility Billing Office or the Department of Social Services. Others who do not meet these income guidelines, but can provide proof of financial hardship, may qualify. The program may also assist in covering the cost of water and sewer bills when water leaks occur not resulting from customer negligence.
