Anchorage Wastewater Utility (AWWU) - Coins Can Count Program for Emergency Assistance

The AWWU Coins Can Count Program provides the opportunity to help members of our community who may be facing a financial crisis and cannot pay their bill. Program participants’ monthly bills are rounded up to the next whole dollar and that money is used to assist those customers in need. The average customer contributes approximately $6 per year. The MOA Department of Health and Human Services office determines customer eligibility. These funds will only be used to pay water and wastewater bills in the AWWU service area. One time assistance only. Contact 343-7770 to determine your eligibility.
