How much will I save?

The grant from ALCOSAN’s Clean Water Assistance Fund is $30 every three months. The credit will be applied to your account by the agency that bills you for sewage treatment – for example, these bills may come from Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority, Jordan Tax Service, Wilkinsburg-Penn Joint Water Authority, your municipality or some other agency. The credits will automatically appear every three months, even if you are billed monthly, bimonthly or quarterly.

How do I apply?

Social service agencies across the region accept and process applications. The list of agencies with contact information is on the reverse side; you may contact any agency on the list. Call for an appointment to apply in person.

You will need to provide a copy of your water/sewage bill, which includes ALCOSAN charges, so take one with you. You also must provide the Social Security numbers of all members of the household and proof of your household’s monthly income. If you already are eligible for an assistance program through another utility, you can use that approval to verify your eligibility.
