Utility bill payment assistance programs

Last Updated:

Are there any federal assistance programs that offer utility bill payment assistance?

No. There are no such state or federal programs that you can find for paying utility bills. But for those in need of help with their overdue bills, there is definitely something that one can do to overcome this emergency. To get financial help with bills, we suggest getting help from:

1. charitable organizations and

2. local churches.

These are two options that are definitely within your reach. Organizations like the United Way and the Salvation Army have offered a great deal of help to a lot of people and they can help you with bills if resources are available at the time of your asking. Even if you fail to get assistance from these organizations, you can get to know several other resources locally that have an history of helping with your particular needs. Remember that in addition to the two organizations mentioned before, there are thousands of them across the nation helping families every day. Do not lose hope if you fail to get financial help from one of the organizations. Ask around and rest assured there will be someone out there that will help you deal with a hardship.

As an alternative to a physical visit to these organizations, call 2-1-1 to get quick information on local organizations and resources that offer financial assistance. Once you get through to this number, a specialist at the other end will ask for information on what you are looking for and advise on the same within a few minutes. Apart from the resources mentioned so far, local churches are also known for helping needy families with food, clothing and monetary help from time to time. Even if you are not a member of local church, you can seek assistance at times of distress from churches nearby.

Getting help from Salvation Army:

In order to get approved for assistance, you will have to meet a few requirements, one among them being the household income limits. Aside from offering help with emergencies or bills, Salvation Army also helps in various other ways that could assist you in improving your overall life situation.
