Texas Utility Help is accepting new applications for utility bill payment assistance.

The Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs recently directed an additional $48 million from the Federal Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act to support low-income homeowners and renters who need help paying energy bills. Additional funding is available for water and wastewater bills.
