Kingsport takes steps to assist delinquent utility customers

Local nonprofit organization offers assistance for low-income households

The City of Kingsport has partnered with the Upper East Tennessee Human Development Agency (UETHDA) to highlight a temporary emergency program to help low-income families pay overdue water bills.

The program is called the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) and is administered by UETHDA. LIHWAP is based on a combination of annual income compared to the number of people in your household.

A single person household qualifies if they earn less than $26,469. A household of two qualifies if they earn less than $34,613. A household of three qualifies if they earn less than $42,757. While a household of four qualifies if they earn less than $50,952.

If you qualify for the program, as long as you owe at least $10 on your water bill, you will receive a credit for $250. If your bill exceeds this amount, you may be credited for the larger amount.

If you need immediate assistance due to a cut-off notice, apply in person at the Kingsport Neighborhood Service Center at V.O. Dobbins (301 Louis Street). Please use the south entrance.

You will need to bring a copy of at least one social security card for someone in the home, a copy of a driveru2019s license or an ID card of the person completing the application, along with proof of income for the last 30 days for everyone in the home over the age of 18.

The LIHWAP program is scheduled to end September 30, 2023. UETHDA has dispensed $365,000 in LIHWAP funds throughout its 8-county service area with $1.3 million remaining.

For more information on applying for utility bill payment assistance, call UETHDA at 423-246-6180.
