Thanks to Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, The Water Fund is available to families in Maryland experiencing difficulties paying their water bill. Created in 1994 by WSSC Water employees, The Water Fund helps residential customers in financial need pay their water/sewer bills. Since its inception, more than $1.4 million has been distributed to more than 16,647 people in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to assist in payments. In the 2020FY, the Water Fund provided life’s most precious resource to 2,847 of our neighbors through the distribution of nearly $350,000. Donations from WSSC customers, employees, and community members support the Water Fund.
The Salvation Army assists clients and manages the fund, while WSSC Water pays the administrative and promotional fees. This means 100 percent of all donations go directly to those in need.
