Fort Collins Utilities’ Payment Assistance Fund helps keep the electric and water utilities on for many local families in need. The fund is maintained entirely by customer donations and has helped more than 2,000 residents since 2004.
For several years, the fund has experienced an increase in customers who need assistance, and sometimes community members have been turned away because there isn’t enough money available. Utilities’ goal is to increase funding so that assistance is available to all customers who need it.
A one-time donation of $150 or an ongoing monthly contribution of $12.50 will help keep the heat, lights and water on for many local residents. However, all donations are appreciated. One hundred percent of funding is used for assistance.
