Do You Qualify for a Water Bill Discount?

SJW’s Water Rate Assistance Program (WRAP) provides a 15% discount on the total water bill for eligible low-income customers. To qualify, you must meet the following requirements:

  • The San Jose Water bill must be in your name or you must be a submetered tenant in a mobile home park.
  • You may not be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return.
  • You must reapply each time you move.
  • You must renew your application every two years, or sooner, if requested.
  • You must notify San Jose Water within 30 days if you become ineligible for WRAP.
  • You must provide verification of your household income with your application, such as a tax return, W-2 or any other proof acceptable to SJW. PG&E CARE participants must submit a copy of their PG&E bill.
