CWLP’S PROJECT RELIEF PROGRAM HELPS FAMILIES IN NEED
As another heating season is here, City Water, Light and Power customers who need help paying water and electric bills could qualify for assistance from the utility’s Project RELIEF program.
Project RELIEF is entirely supported through donations, primarily from CWLP customers who add $1 or more to their monthly bill to help those less fortunate. Since the program’s inception over 3,000 families have been helped. Last year over $28,000 was raised and 141 families were assisted.
All funds that are received for Project RELIEF go directly to those in need, without any amount being used to cover administrative costs. Individuals can sign up to support the CWLP program through their utility bill year-round.
Customers can begin applying for assistance from Project RELIEF on December 1.
