With over 43 million Americans living below the poverty line, an unexpected home emergency repair can cause financial shock. What can cities do to provide affordable solutions to residents in the event of a water or sewer line break?

The NLC Service Line Warranty Program is one tool that cities are using to help safeguard residents from monetary hardship in the face of unexpected home repairs. Learn how a West Virginia community used this program to address aging infrastructure and became one of the first cities to implement this program. In 2018, residents in the United States saved over 90 million dollars on the cost of repairs. Join NLC partner Service Utility Partners for a webinar led by former NLC President and Mayor of Clarksburg, WV, Jim Hunt, learn how you can bring this program to your city.
