The Prince William County Service Authority currently offers two programs that allow residents to support neighbors who might need assistance paying their water and sewer bill this holiday season.

First, residents can donate to the Temporary Assistance Program (TAP) at Funds from TAP are directed to two local Prince William County non-profit organizations, Action in the Community Through Service (ACTS) and Northern Virginia Family Service (SERVE), to distribute to customers needing emergency assistance with their Service Authority bills. All donations made to TAP are tax deductible.

Second, you can also help a friend or relative struggling to make ends meet by making a financial donation to that individual’s Service Authority customer account through the Helping Hand Program at

“We are always thrilled with the support that our customers show these programs throughout the year,” said Brian Sipes, Director of Finance for the Service Authority. “Their generosity continues to make a huge difference in the lives of many Prince William County residents.”

Since 2010, the Service Authority has received more than 20,000 individual donations for customers who need financial assistance. Now in its 12th year, the TAP program alone has assisted 1,367 customers.
