Shut Off Protection Ends Today, June 14th: Get Help With Your Utility Bills

If you need help paying your utility, water, or sewer bills, apply for assistance now!

Shut-off protection for customers who apply for assistance ends today, June 14th, 2022. These extended protections require local authorities, municipal or public utilities, and rural electric cooperatives to continue providing electric, gas, sewer, or water service to residential customers who submit an application for utility assistance by June 14th, 2022 but have not yet received a determination.

Some residential customers with overdue utility bills can receive an extension, but they must apply for assistance by the end of today, June 14th.

If individuals with overdue balances apply for an assistance program by June 14th, their service will not be disconnected while their application is pending. Individuals may also contact their utility to set up a payment plan.
