Energy Assistance Program Offering Funds to Help Residents Avoid Utility Disconnection

Milwaukee County wants to help you with your utility bills.

The Winter Moratorium ends April 15th so the county is offering a $300 down payment when customers sign up for a utility payment plan this month only. The county says it's a good chance for people to catch up on their bills.

"People will start getting disconnection notices which can kind of put your household in a panic. So we want people to come in now while they still have some options and we can help them get that taken care of and make a good payment plan for themselves."

The county says it's helping 70,000 households with energy assistance.
