How and Where to Look for Help to Pay Utility Bills (Electric, Gas, Water)

Keeping the lights on, the air conditioner and heater working, and the water running are necessities for survival in today’s world.

But with rising energy costs and increasing job losses and layoffs, more and more people are finding it difficult to pay their electric, gas, and water bills.

If you are in a situation where you need help paying these bills, there are charities and organizations that are providing assistance to people just like you.

First, call your utility company.

  • Ask if they have an assistance program, a discount program or if you can set up a payment plan.
  • Be sure to let them know if you have an ill or elderly person or small children in the house. This may give you priority consideration.

Contact NEAR (National Energy Assistance Referral Project)

  • They provide financial assistance towards a household’s energy bill, emergency assistance if a household’s home energy service is shut off or about to be shut off and give priority to those with a young child, disabled person, or frail older individual.
  • You can call them at 1-866-674-6327 8:00 am – 6:00 pm EST.
  • They can give you information for local and state LIHEAP (Low Income Energy Assistance Program) agencies in your area

Contact your local Community Action Agency (CAA)

  • The service areas of Community Action Agencies (CAAs) cover 96 percent of the nation’s counties.
  • Because each Community Action Agency is governed locally, each provides a different mix of services.
  • Call (202) 265-7546 for information, or

1. Go to www.communityactionpartnership.com

2. Click on “Community Action Network”

3. Click on “Find a Community Action Agency”

4. Contact the local agency.

Contact a church close to you.

  • If you belong to a church, call and ask about funds they may have set aside to help members.
  • Many Catholic Churches try to help anyone in need in their parish area. If they cannot help, ask them for the phone number for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in your area and the number for the local Catholic Charities.

Contact your city or county Housing Authority.

  • In many areas they are conducting a Homeless Prevention Program.
  • They may pay up to 3 months rent and utilities.

 

For more Resources that help with Utilities click on “Utilities” in the “Quick Info” Section on this blog. (FindHelptoPayMyBills.com).


Remember…

Times are tough for everyone right now. And that includes Agencies and Organizations.

You may need to contact several places. If you cannot find all that you need from one place… you may be able to get part of what you need from several different places.

When you can, remember those who help you.

Pass it on. Donate what you can to help others facing the same  kind of challenges you are facing. You know what it is like.

This is how we all help each other.

I’d love to hear from you!

I am a Registered Nurse and have been helping people for over 30 years

Throughout the years I have become acutely aware of the emotional toll on people facing financial difficulties, and the challenges they have trying to find help when they need it most desperately.  

I had often wished there was a single source where people could go, to find out where to look for help and learn how to access it – quickly and easily. I never could find it.

That’s why I now research information and make it available for you in an organized, easy-to-use format on my blog @ FindHelptoPayMyBills.com

    Hello,
    My Name is David. I am 22yrs of age and in need of help. I have my father, 2 brothers and baby sister living here with me. We are on the verge of having our lights turned off along with our gas. I am a student at my local community college full-time and my father is incapable of working due to damages done to his hand as a result from his former job. I need to come up with at least $500 to pay off our gas bill and keep our lights on. I don’t have a job, but I am still looking. I have never been in this situation before and I’m scared that I won’t be able to keep our utilities on for my family. I have never asked for help like this before, but I am now. If there is anyone that knows of a place I can ask that is able to help me in my current situation, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you and God bless.

    Im a single mother of a 1yr. old daughter as well as a caretaker for my disabled mother who lives with me. During these times I have been trying my hardest to provide for my family without much any help from my daughter’s father and barely any help from the state for my mother. I am currently looking for help with my SMUD bill, that as of Dec.12, 2012 will be turned off, that has totaled at $623.00. I have prayed endlessly and looked to numerous resources, so I thought posting on here might bring some sort of help if any is available in these tough times. I’d appreciate any feedback, of information as far as my options in Sacramento, CA. God Bless and Well Wishes for the Holidays!!

    Well my light bill is $889 and my light were cut off on Tuesday my daughter is 1 years old and when we enter the apartment she starts to scream and kick. It breaks my heart so she has been with her God mother for the past 3 days. I called Con Ed and they are willing to put my lights if I pay $400 which I dont have. Im a part time worker and my baby daddy is a dead beat, I miss my daughter I want her home with me already. PLEASE HELP :-((

    the 1-866-674-6327 number listed above is a scam and will tell you that the number has changed and to hit 2 to get a text sent to you with information on the new number. It then tells you that you will be chared $9.99 for message and data rates (which you obviously don’t have if you are on here looking for help) I tried to reply with “stop” so that I wouldn’t be chared, and it will not accept the message. I called my mobile company to stop the charges. What a scam this stuff is. Trying to steal from the poor!!

    I too am in a bad position. I lost my job about a month ago and my husband lost his job about 2 weeks ago and we have applied for state help but it is still pending,I have an interview on Wednesday but until a pay check comes in we have nothing. I am 2 months behind on rent and 2 months behind on my electric and can not find any help, not even to just get us by til we find jobs. I have a 14 year old who I cant even buy school supplies for, I feel so terrible and just dont know what to do but cry. I really hope and pray that the Lord hears mine and everyone else’s prayers for some relief. Lord people need help to take care of their family’s, please hear our cries for help.

    Contact us via email wilbur_holloway01@hotmail.com

    I have worked foe 20 years and the past 13 I have raised all 6 of my children alone.There father was murdered. I took a buy out and am in College, but my counslor did nothing to help me with appropriate requirements. Now I have no income, I have no food for me or my sons, I feed them what I can and I go without. I have tried to get help, and it is just rotten. I never asked for help ever before in my life, and now i am losing everything and I cant even get food stamps. I am giving up, I can not register my son, or paY utilities. The agencies find every reason to deny me, I just am sick of struggling, and my kids need food. What a bias unfair system.

      yep, i know the filling. i was aproved for medicad for my child. & they told me since i was able to get medicade that i should be accepted for food stamps. u know i was rejected again for the 3rd time b/c i make like a $1 too much. does that make any sense. but they allow some idoit that got out of jail with no kids get food the same day. i had to pay my electric or it would have been off this monday for 8am they said. i’m already -200 in the bank & my bill was 269. plus i needed food for this week. so more nsf’s for me. woohoo! what a life. haven’t been able to do a damn thing for my child since she was born b/c everything that we make goes for nsf’s or bills. never have anything left for her. & this weekend is her b-day.

        iam in the same boat u are. i always get told that we make to much to get any or no help….. my son has ADHD and is taking two meds, my daughter has high blood pressure ,enlarge kidney and is taking three blood pressure meds and one ADHD med, my husband is on several meds for back problems high blood pressure and depression . and i get told no help for us because we work. my electric is due to be shut off Jan 3 ,2012 my water is already shut off and my furnace doesn’t work. so im heating my drafty house (that is a 1980 trailer) with my kitchen stove and kerosene.my checking account is -400 so no food for the week no gas to go to work no water on and electric will be shut off because paycheck will be for NSF to the bank…but they can help people who refused to work at all…..

      Dear Linda,
      Contact Catholic Charities in your area and schedule an appointment with a counselor for assistance and advice on financial fitness, employment, housing and food assistance, and application to Medicaid, and Food Stamps..
      I am not aware of any charities or organizations that are able to pay all bills for people on an ongoing basis.
      Please remember that charities get donations from people who are also struggling but who are willing to share what they can to help others.
      Americans are a very giving and generous people. Most communities have pantries with clothing and food. Check with any church close to you to find where they are in your area.

    • August 17, 2011 at 6:01 pm

      This is not a site to ask others here for help. It is a site to provide you with information so you can help yourself.
      Check out the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and Community Action Agency in your area for help with school clothes.
      Also, most communities have places where you can get clothes. Ask any church in your area if they know of places close to you.

        but the ? is… how can u help yourself? ii’ve never ask for money… but i need to be pointed in the direction to get some help. but all the agencies they only want to help ppl that don’t work, don’t pay bills, or don’t pay taxes. the ones that think that they deserve or entiltied to everything. & i know that everyone knows who i’m talking about. ones that walk into walmart with a foodstamp card, has lot of kids, & buy nothing but damn snacks. & they wonder why their kids are so un-healthy. but their are a lot of us that have done things by the book. we grew up… went to college… got a job… pay bills… pay taxes… start a family during all of that… & still can’t get any help. this country is going to fall apart if the idoit gets re-elected. so… the ? again is how or where or what agencies can we go to & not get turn away? rejected??

        Hi Meaux,
        It is frustrating and discouraging when it seems like those who do nothing but milk “the system” get benefits and those who try to be self-sufficient and responsible are denied. Some people just seem to feel entitled to use other people’s hard earned money to pay their bills for them.
        But many charities are trying to help out. Be sure to contact the local Society of St. Vincent de Paul in your area. They will do all they can to help you, and without all the bureaucratic red tape and mountains of eligibility requirements. Their mission is to help anyone in need.
        Call a Catholic Church close to you (you do NOT need to be Catholic to get help) and ask them for the number for a local Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
        These are volunteers who donate their time, money and prayers to help good people who need assistance.
        Since they are volunteers, there is likely not a published phone number, which is why you will need to call a Catholic Church. They will know if there is one in your area.
        If there is not a local group close to you, contact the national headquarters (Go to http://www.SVDPUSA.org) They may be able to help you find another Conference that can help. They help each other out when they can. Remember, their mission is to help people in need and they will do all they can to help you.
        Also be sure to check with Catholic Charities in your area. Again, you do NOT need to be Catholic to get help. Any Catholic church close to you can also give you the number for a local Catholic Charities office.
        Also ask the churches in your area for referrals to other community resources. Many times there are agencies and organizations that the government agencies and 211 may not be aware of.
        God Bless and don’t give up. Please try the resources provided here on this site, and remember to pass it on when you can. This is how we help each other.
