Be­gin­ning on May 1, 2019, Tal­la­toona will be­gin ac­cept­ing ap­point­ments for the cool­ing (elec­tric bill) as­sis­tance pro­gram.

An ap­point­ment can be sched­uled via the web­site or by call­ing the ap­point­ment line. Home­bound House­holds can re­quest a home­bound ap­point­ment by call­ing the ap­point­ment line only.

Fam­i­lies who qual­ify will re­ceive ei­ther $350.00 or $400.00 to­ward their elec­tric bill. It is not nec­es­sary that your bill be in dis­con­nec­tion sta­tus to re­ceive as­sis­tance.

An ap­point­ment for cool­ing as­sis­tance does not guar­an­tee pro­cess­ing or pay­ment. Ap­provals and pay­ments are made when and if funds are re­ceived. Please con­tinue to pay on your bill.

Ap­point­ments are sched­uled on a first-come first­served ba­sis. Please DO NOT walk-in to your lo­cal Tal­la­toona of­fice for an of­fice for an ap­point­ment; your lo­cal of­fice can­not sched­ule ap­point­ments.
