Currently Accepting Applications
We have partnered with the United Way of St. Joseph County to become a site to offer Team Heat. Team Heat is a utility assistance program for low income families which aims at helping alleviate the cost of their gas or electric heating/cooling bill.
This is a matching program. Payments you make toward your bill will be matched up to a certain amount based on that year's funding availability. This amount is typically in the $50-$100 range.
Due to Covid-19, sign-ups for this program will be done online.
How to apply:
Make a payment on your account and save your proof of payment. (accepted proof of payment is a receipt from a pay station, screen shot of confirmation of payment of your bill from your online account, or current bill that show's last month's payment.
