The Lifeline Assistance Program (LAP) provides eligible low-income customers with assistance on their water utility bill by providing up to nine (9) units of water per billing cycle at no cost.
Only residential customers are eligible to participate in the District's LAP. To apply, customers must
submit a LAP application (in person, by mail or online) along with demonstration of financial need. To
demonstrate financial need, please submit a current copy of your Southern California Edison or Southern
California Gas Company utility statement showing participation in California Alternative Rates for
Energy (CARE) or Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) programs. If approved, LAP funding will be
applied to the customer's next water bill following application approval.
The customer applying for LAP must be named on the District water bill and also match the customer
named on the Southern California Edison or Southern California Gas Company utility statement.
Customers participating in LAP are required to renew each year and may be asked to recertify their
eligibility sooner. Program participants must notify the District within 30 days if they no longer meet
Customer participation in LAP is on a “first come, first serve” basis. Program funding is limited and not guaranteed.
Income guidelines are set each year by the California Public Utility Commission's CARE Program.
Please submit a current copy of your gas or electric utility statement showing participation in CARE or FERA programs.
