Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP)

The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) received $15 Million in federal funding for the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) to assist low-income households with their overdue water and wastewater bills.

The Roxborough Water and Sanitation District highly encourages residents struggling to pay their water bill to apply for this program.
Funds are extremely limited and are distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

To qualify for this assistance, the household must:

  • Apply and been approved for LEAP
  • Complete the addendum within the LEAP application and submit a copy of your overdue Roxborough WSD water and sewer bill.
  • Services must be disconnected, facing disconnection, or have a past due amount on the bill.


If you have trouble completing the on-line application, contact the LEAP office at 1-866-432-8435 and they will help you complete the application.
