The Community Outreach Center was excited to partner with Veolia, who, sharing our passion for assisting the disadvantaged and promoting environmental sustainability, funded our LIHWAP (Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program) program to help residents avoid water shutoffs and worked collaboratively with our agency to notify residents of available rebate offers on water-efficient purchases, saving consumers hundreds of dollars.
“Bringing the LIHWAP program to our community is another new COC achievement” says Executive Director of Community Outreach Center Rabbi Hersh Horowitz. “We are proud to have already assisted over 300 families with the LIHWAP, guiding disadvantaged individuals through the entire application process and graciously helping them utilize eligible resources for overdue water and sewer bills.”
Veolia sponsored $15,000 for COC to promote LIWHAP and water conservation – support which is very appreciated as it has made a real difference to numerous families in Rockland County.
