Short-term assistance

Help for qualifying customers in financial distress

UES works with community organizations to provide emergency bill payment assistance for limited-income customers in financial distress. Participation is limited, and qualifications may vary depending on the agency offering assistance.

Do you qualify?

  • Eligibility is limited to customers whose household income does not exceed levels based on federal poverty guidelines.
  • Agencies can only provide assistance to residents of their designated service areas.
  • Customers must complete applications and provide identification and other documentation required by participating agencies.
