The program is designed to provide financial credits to customers whose incomes are at or below 200% of the federal poverty guideline (see here). The primary verification of income is proof of participation in PG&E’s CARE Program.

Application Information

The CCWD CAP is launching at 8 a.m. January 2, 2019. Applications will not be available at the office or online until that time. To apply, an applicant must turn in a completed, signed application, along with a recent PG&E bill in their name showing CARE Program participation. Additionally, if the applicant is a tenant, they will need provide CCWD with a copy of their current rental agreement with their landlord. If that agreement is not available, tenants must have their landlord sign a Property Owner CAP authorization form (available below).

Once applicants are approved by CCWD staff, they will be notified in writing and receive the following credits:

  • Water only customers: $20 per bimonthly billing period
  • Sewer only customers: $30 per bimonthly billing period
  • Water & sewer customers: $50 per bimonthly billing period

In order to stay on the program, participants will be required to reapply for the program annually starting in 2020.

More information about this program will be posted in the weeks to come. Those with questions or concerns may contact CCWD Customer Service at or (209) 754-3543.
