Description: 

Median household income can inform how managers and utility staff make financial and managerial decisions, and can also be an important data point for potential funders and loan programs. In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:

  • How to determine if your system could benefit from an income survey
  • How income surveys can benefit decision-making
  • How it could help you develop a stronger capital improvement plan
  • Gain knowledge on the MHI process, how and when to get started
  • How to determine who conducts the survey, and who’s going to pay for it
