Low Income Program

H20 Help to Others
H2O Help to Others is an emergency assistance program created by Illinois American Water and the Salvation Army of Illinois. The program helps provide supplemental funding to Illinois American Water customers who would otherwise have trouble paying their bills.
H2O Help to Others is supported by customers' voluntary donations and contributions from Illinois American Water. Illinois American Water donates approximately $115,000 annually to H2O Help to Others.  Customers may make a voluntary donation to the program on their water bills.  These donations to the program are in addition to the company donation.  The Salvation Army's trained caseworkers determine the needs of families and individuals, who must be Illinois American Water customers.

Who qualifies for H2O Help program assistance?


Any individual or family whose water service is being provided by Illinois American Water and who is in danger of losing their primary source of water and meets the "basic needs" criteria as set by Salvation Army caseworkers.

How You Can Help?

Illinois American Water customers who wish to contribute to the H2O Help to Others Program™ can do so by adding a donation to their Illinois American Water bill payment. With a single pledge, your donation per billing period will be automatically added to your water bill. You can be assured that 100 percent of your donation goes directly to qualifying customers. Our company assumes all administrative costs for this program so that every penny you donate goes directly to this worthwhile cause.
