In a tremendous victory for PIIN’s Ratepayer Justice Task Force and the Clean Rivers Campaign, the Board of the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority awarded a contract to Dollar Energy Fund Inc. to administer a Customer Assistance Program (CAP). The program should help ensure that ALCOSAN ratepayers—especially low-income residents—aren’t stuck footing water bills they cannot afford.

This is an important first step in securing the protection of our most vulnerable community members and residents.

ALCOSAN is expected to launch the program in January.
