H2O Care Fund

The City of Wichita invites you to participate in a voluntary donation program to help those who are having difficulty paying their water bills.

The City recognizes that there are many residents who are struggling during these difficult economic times. This voluntary program provides a simple way to directly help others. Even small donations can add up and provide a way for people to maintain their water service.

The program will be administered by the Center of Hope, a local nonprofit that provides emergency financial assistance to support individuals and families in Wichita. Assistance will be provided to customers who meet the guidelines listed. Recipients will also receive information on ways to reduce water consumption.
