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.
2. Water bills (related to evaporative cooling for bills incurred for the months of May 1 through October 31) (Mohave County Only)
3. Payments to Landlords (when utility costs are included in rent) must have a lease agreement.
Policy Change Effective 12/19/2014
WACOG uses a first come first serve process but will initiate triage and priority protocols when capacity or funding deficits exists in order to meet the most vulnerable client needs first. Clients are given the next available appointment at the point of initial contact. This practice is the same in La Paz, Mohave and Yuma County Locations.
