Utility Assistance

The WACOG Utility Assistance Program provides assistance in paying utility bills to low-income households. Staff and volunteers take applications at numerous locations throughout La Paz, Mohave, and Yuma Counties. WACOG Case Workers assist homebound applicants when necessary.

It is important to WACOG to meet the needs of as many people as possible within Yuma, La Paz, and Mohave County. We take this obligation extremely seriously and attempt to develop the most efficient and effective procedures that will allow the equality of distribution of funds.

This is important because the huge demands placed upon this service and there is no alternative funding source to meet this particular need within our communities.

Utility Assistance funds will be utilized to provide the following services:

 

  • Utility payment for heating/cooling bill assistance
    • Electric
    • Gas 
    • Propane
    • Wood/Coal
  • Water bills (related to evaporative cooling for bills incurred for the months of May 1st through October 31 for Mohave County only
  • Payments to Landlords (when utility costs are included in rent) must have a lease agreement.
