Kentucky Homeowner Assistance Fund

Customers who were impacted by COVID may be able to receive financial assistance on their past due water and sewer bills.


Large Leak Assistance Program

If you experienced a large leak in 2020 or 2021 and you were unable to repair it due to COVID-19, Louisville Water, Louisville MSD, and the Louisville Water Foundation launched a fund to assist you with reducing the total bill amount owed (provided the leak was repaired). Please complete this form and include a valid receipt of the repair. Our Customer Service team will contact you to share next steps if you are eligible for the program. Note: This program applies to residential customers only.
