WACOG’S UTILITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Electricity, Gas, Propane, Wood, Coal
WACOG’s Utility Assistance Program is available to individuals and households who need financial assistance with their home energy costs in Yuma, La Paz, and Mohave Counties. Individuals and households who qualify for other benefits such as SNAP, SSI, TANF, may also be eligible for Utility Assistance.
However, because generally demand for utility assistance is greater than resources’ availability, WACOG Utility Assistance Program operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is given based on an initial triage protocol to ensure that applicants experiencing a health and safety risk may be provided with timely assistance.
Due to COVID-19, WACOG’s Utility Assistance Program staff continues to offer its services via telephone and email for all individuals and households.
