If you need help understanding this form, please contact Charlie Smith 970-247-4062

Lake Durango Water Authority (LDWA) offers limited financial assistance to qualified low income homeowners. This assistance is intended to partially mitigate the impact of the 2009 acquisition costs.

Eligibility Criteria

The following criteria must be met:

Application Process

  1. Applications may be printed here from the website or may be picked up at the LDWA office (667 South Lakeside Dr
    , Durango, CO)
  2. Application and supporting proof of income should be returned to the LDWA office or mail box (P.O Box 657 Durango, 81302) by the deadline of March 1, 2012.
  3. All complete applications will be considered by a subcommittee of the Board of Directors in a single meeting in March.
  4. The limited amount of assistance available will be distributed based on eligibility and need.
  5. Awarded assistance will be provided as an adjustment to the water bill (whether billed by LDWA, DW1 or DW2) for the remainder of 2012. The maximum assistance award will be $15 per month but may be less depending on the number and need of the applicants.
  6. If more homeowners are eligible than can be accommodated by the annual budgeted amount a waiting list will be maintained. If a homeowner no longer receives assistance for any reason a new homeowner may be notified of their eligibility mid-year based on the position on the waiting list.
  7. The application process must be completed annually. Recipients are responsible for submitting a new application each year. The only notice given will be the annual notification received in the January billing. Applications may be accepted mid-year but will not be considered until the annual eligibility determination meeting in March.

All information submitted by applicants will be kept confidential and will be stored securely per federal and state requirements.
