Community Warmth

Community Warmth can help if you are struggling to pay your utility bill.


If you are experiencing financial hardship, you can access community support services and one-time emergency funding to assist with utility bills.

You may qualify for relief if you:

  • Have received a disconnect warning notice for utilities
  • Are experiencing financial issues beyond your control
  • Have not received assistance from this program in the last year
  • Are willing to complete an application

You may need to provide proof of income for all household members.

If you or someone you know is in need of assistance or would be in a position to donate, please direct them to the Community Warmth brochure.
