Grant Available For Low Income Families Who Struggle To Pay Utilities

The Dollar Energy Fund will start providing assistance to low income families who need help paying their utility bills on Wednesday, October 1st. The maximum amount of money available to a family in a single grant is $500 per utility so a family can receive up to $1,500 to pay for gas, electric, and water bills. Dollar Energy funds the grant program through a dollar for dollar match with participating utility companies. To qualify a family must be low income and in danger of losing their utility service or be without service.
