Listings for Financial / Emergency Utility Assistance

Financial

Finances impact every part of our lives. As we age, finances can be strained by a fixed income, familial obligations, changes in the economy, and more. Resources, both public and private, in the community can help you to navigate your personal financial situations.

Emergency Utility Assistance

These programs can help low-income people pay utility bills, including water, electric, phone service, trash, and more. Most programs have income limits, guidelines, and an application process. Organizations funded through the Low-Income Senior Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) are only able to help with one utility bill per person per year.
