Help Paying Utilities




Get help with utility bills from Project SHARE

Several of the regional based utilities in Florida offer a program known as Project SHARE. While the specifics of each program will vary, in general they were created with the intent to provides emergency assistance (whether financial or advice) to those customers who need help with paying their utility bills, help customers if the individual needs assistance or repairs to heating and air-conditioning equipment, and other energy-related needs. The Project SHARE program will help the elderly, low income, the disabled, unemployed, the sick and others who are experiencing financial hardship make it through a difficult period. Some of the utility companies that offer help from this program include:

Gulf Power - They request that you contact The Salvation Army office in your county to get more information on, or to apply for Project SHARE.

Gainesville Regional Utilities - If you are a customer of theirs, call the the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, United Way, or Gainesville Community Ministry. You can call the United Way 211.
