What We Do
CSC provides utility assistance to help our neighbors with basic life essentials that everyone deserves. We partner with local utility providers to keep lights on, water running, and your home comfortable year-round!
Jan 2023 update: Due to high demand, assistance is limited for the time being, pending legislative approval for additional funding. Until then, please be patient and continue to work with your landlord, utility provider, and our team members.

Complete applications are processed in the order received (must provide supporting documents). Once the application process is complete and you qualify, your 'pledge' will be applied directly to your utility account. Please note, application processing can take up to 6-8 weeks.
Dependent on household eligibility, heating assistance starts at $250 and water assistance starts at $100. Please note that funding is limited, multiple payments should not be expected.
Our appointments can fill up fast, we recommend calling around the 1st of the month as that is when we open the following month’s availability. But, you don't need an appointment to apply! See below about downloading an application and skip the wait.
No, you need to continue paying your utility bill as you're able. If you have a shut off notice, or will not be able to pay a future bill, call your utility provider to make a payment plan and let them know you have applied with us. It can take 2-3 billing cycles to post in your account, depending on your utility provider.
Eligibility criteria apply. Households (includes all adults living in the residence) must meet income guidelines.
