Electric, gas and propane relief funding is available now through Gila County’s Community Action Program for residents who meet low-income guidelines, or are experiencing unemployment or another qualifying hardship.
Eligibility guidelines for utility help: living alone and earning less than $2,061 gross per month or sharing your home with one more and earning less than $2,695 (and $3,329 if three household members).
If you have a question about eligibility, call local CAP office staff Elsa or Dorine in Payson at 928-474-7192.
Gila County assistance begins with a two-page application, which you can fill out online and email, download, or print ahead of time from the website tinyurl.com/CAPcanHELP which links to gilacountyaz.gov.
To get the application from the county’s main page, choose “Offices & Departments” and then click “Community Services” and then “Community Action Program.”
Or if you’d like to request a copy of this form by mail or email, reach staff by email to Elsa or Dorine at email@example.com.
If you don’t have internet access or a computer, call Community Action staff. For those without internet access, during weekday business hours, you’re welcome to call Community Action staff in Payson at 928-474-7192 to ask Elsa or Dorine about your eligibility for programs such as Low Income Home Energy Assistance.
