Texas programs for utility bills

Post by Copper » Sat Nov 09, 2013 9:19 am

Our air-conditioning is out and we will have no heat this fall. Unit went out and is repairable. Can't get any financial help. Went bankruptcy last year so cant get help. Unit is 20 years old. We need help. No one has financing. Tried many companies. Live in Fort Worth TX, Tarrant County. No one has contact info. May have to find an apartment and foreclose on home to get through. Do you have any routes I can take. Don’t have any funding.

Yes, we do have information on many utility programs in Texas. Now repairs to units is not common. Maybe explore CEAP in that state. Or another option is weatherization. But really almost every single energy, gas, and utility company in Texas offers some type of emergency program. You need to call around. Ask a community action agency in Texas for referrals, talk to your utility company, and be aggressive in calling. Click more details.

I am a 50 year old former barber- hairstylist. I am unable to work in this profession because of an accident that caused injury to one of my hands and wrist. I am presently doing odd jobs when I can find them. I was approved for a Lone Star card so I now am able to buy food. I have no help from family. I sold my truck so I can have a place to live and pay my utilities.
It gets harder and harder to pay my water and electric bills. I have Ambit Electric and the lady there said that I might qualify for assistance. She suggested I check with Lite Up Texas but I have tried to get in touch with them and the number for them does not respond. It says try back later. I need information on who I can contact to seek help. Thank you very much.

Greetings:
Can you please tell me who offer services with the LIHEAP Program here in Houston Texas? What agencies directly will assist with helping with my utilities. I am a Senior on fixed income and has some medical issues.
Are there several programs named under the LIHEAP Program? Certain agencies that is under this program, or what?
Please explain and inform me who and where I need to go to get assistance. My time is running out and the electric company will make me pay another deposit if I don't get my bill caught up.

HI, I live in Texas with my 3 amazing children and my boyfriend. We have been without electricity for a few months, because our electric bill was 500 dollars and we were two weeks late because we couldn't afford it. We try to maintain running a generator to have lights, water, and air. We were both unemployed, but God blessed me with a job. He is still looking.
I've asked churches for help, family, and friends. No one can help me. I need to get my lights turned on. I can't afford to move and my kids don't deserve this. Please contact me. Thank you. Sent from my Verizon Smartphone.

My name is Curtis Ridge St.
I live in Dallas, TX and I'm looking for some help for my utility. I'm not able to pay all my Bills. What is it that I need to do to get assistance? Can you also tell me about the EOAC program. I believe they also help with utility. I'm not for sure. Could you please help me. I have an electric bill that I got to paid with TXU but I don't have the money to pay. Please help and let me what I need to do.

There are some options, one being the Dallas Salvation Army. They may have, from time to time, emergency funds to help pay utility bills, especially if a health or safety issue is i effect.
