In times of need, families turn to Fort Collins Utilities and Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) for assistance. The Payment Assistance Fund helps customers catch up on their overdue utility bills and get back on track.
“Getting our utility bill paid took a major worry off our minds,” said a recent assistance recipient whose hours were cut at work. “The program has allowed us to focus more on other expenses, our jobs and the kids’ remote schooling.”
More families and individuals than ever are navigating turbulent times and have been unable to pay their electric and water bills. From January to August of this year, the Payment Assistance Fund helped more than 515 Utilities customers – a 162% increase over the same period last year. The need for assistance continues to grow and may exceed the available resources. We’re asking for your help so that no one is turned away.
You can help those in need with a monthly or one-time donation to Utilities’ Payment Assistance Fund. One hundred percent of donations assist families and individuals in our community. Every donation is matched dollar-for-dollar by Energy Outreach Colorado, so your gift goes even further. All donations, no matter the size, make a difference.
