Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this message is to share a temporary preview of the Model Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) Plan Template for application of LIHWAP funding from the Consolidated Appropriation Act 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, along with supportive documents (LIHWAP Model Plan Instructions and LIHWAP Model Plan Definitions).

The Model LIHWAP Application Plan and all supportive documents will be released in its fillable PDF form next week through an Action Transmittal that will confirm the date that Plans are due and how they must be submitted to our office. The Model LIHWAP Application Plan will be due from grantees to the Office of Community Services (OCS) 45 days from the date of release of the Model LIHWAP Application Plan Action Transmittal (in the case that this date falls on a Federal holiday, the due date will be on the next business day).

The preview of the Model LIHWAP Application Plan, along with the preview of the LIHWAP Model Plan Instructions and LIHWAP Model Plan Definitions, are in their final form and we do not intend to make any changes to this form. This preview is intended only to provide advanced notice and opportunity to prepare for submission.
