Crisis Program

If you have a shutoff notice from your electric or gas utility, you may qualify for the Utility Crisis program.  Contact us at 801-229-3855 for more information.

All applications for crisis funding, or any HEAT applications treated as a crisis situation (including clients with a shutoff notice), must comply with State and Federal Crisis guidelines.

A crisis is defined as: when a household receives a 48-hour shutoff notice, or is within 10% of depleting deliverable fuel and faces sudden or unexpected event beyond their control resulting in the inability to pay household heating costs.
