EMERGENCY FUNDING ADDED TO CWLP PROJECT RELIEF FOR RESIDENTS, SMALL BUSINESS REBATES STILL AVAILABL

Events Upcoming

New Members

City Water, Light and Power is set to help more residential customers who need help paying their bill this winter season. The utility’s Project RELIEF program was allocated additional emergency funding to assist customers with overdue bills because of COVID-19 and more families in hardship. With this new funding, many more residents in need can get help, plus customers that received Project RELIEF assistance last year, whom normally would be excluded, would be eligible to again apply this year. The first step in applying for assistance from Project RELIEF is to call the CWLP Project RELIEF Office at 789-2414. Qualified applicants must have also gone through this year’s LIHEAP application (www.helpillinoisfamilies.com or call 217.535.3120). Customers meeting the pre-eligibility requirements will be scheduled for a meeting with Fifth Street Renaissance, the program’s administrator

For small businesses in need, CWLP’s Small Business Rate Relief Rebate applications remain open. This program will rebate up to $3,000 for small businesses, including restaurants and bars, for the electric charges on their August and September 2020 bills. All program information and the application are online www.cwlp.com/rebate.


Supplemental funding for both of these programs was made possible by the Springfield City Council allocating $1 million from CWLP’s Environmental and Regulatory Initiative and Rebate Fund (ERIRF) for these assistance programs.
