SWAP Grant Program

VDH's Septic and Well Assistance Program

You may qualify to have your private well and sewer fixed for free.

If you have a house with a well or septic system that needs to be fixed, and your income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines, we can cover the cost.

The Virginia Department of Health will use $11.5 million allocated in the Governor’s Budget Bill approved on August 10, 2021 to help low-income homeowners repair or replace well and septic systems. The allocation is part of the Commonwealth’s funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).  The Office of Environmental Health Services will spend the ARPA funds through the Septic and Well Assistance Program (SWAP), which will be used to assist homeowners with incomes at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines.
