The state of Texas has just rolled out a new program aimed at helping low-income families pay their utility bills on time



Plano, TX – As a consequence of recent price increases and inflation, mostly driven by increased gas costs, a growing number of Americans are having difficulty paying their energy bills on time.

“If you are at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty line, you may be eligible for some energy assistance.” That works up to around $27,000 per year for a household of two. Around $41,000 for a household of four. To apply, just visit There will be all of your past due electric, propane, or gas, as well as any past due water. And moving ahead, $2,400 in respective payments for electric energy and $600 in respective payments for water,” said Bobby Wilkinson of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.

Everyone is advised to apply for funding as soon as possible while there are still funds available.
