How does my agency use the Utility Assistance Program?
- Registration: Prior to using Utility Assistance, the agency will need to complete our one-time registration process that allows online access to account information and provides the ability to pledge a payment toward the client's account. If the agency has previously registered, it may by-pass this step and begin using Utility Assistance. Agencies needing to register can e-mail their request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the agency's name and contact number in the e-mail.
- Making a pledge: Login to Utility Assistance by entering your e-mail ID and password. After logging in, enter the customer account number to retrieve the Pledge/Inquiry page, which provides current account information and prompts for adding a pledge. Complete the pledge details, including authorized agency representative, pledge amount, and e-mail address, then submit. A confirmation page will be displayed and a separate e-mail note will be sent confirming the details of your pledge.
