Utility Assistance - COVID-19

COVID-19 FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR UTILITY PAYMENT

How It Works


Through funding provided by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of College Park and Fulton County have partnered to provide temporary emergency financial assistance for residents negatively impacted by COVID-19. The program is specifically designated for utility payment assistance, designed to prevent utility cutoff once the moratorium on utilities was lifted.  

Income Eligibility Requirements/Verification

College Park's COVID-19 Financial Assistance Program is limited to all Fulton County/City of College Park residents who are at or below 80% of the area median income as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and who have suffered a recent loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
