Good Neighbor Fund
The City of Georgetown is proud to sponsor the Good Neighbor Fund, a program to assist eligible Georgetown Utility customers who are having difficulty paying their utility bill. Voluntary contributions from customers like you fund this program, which is administered by The Caring Place on behalf of the City. Every dollar helps! Contributions can be made to the fund by paying the total due on your utility bill, plus one dollar. You are also able to make a monthly pledge, which will be billed to your utility bill, and can be cancelled at any time for those families paying their bill electronically.
You can enroll in this program by simple checking the box on your utility bill each month and writing the check for $1 more, or by completing the pledge form on-line at the City’s web site or by picking up the pledge form at the City offices at 300-I Industrial Avenue or at The Caring Place.
In 2012, The Caring Place provided over $125,000 in assistance with overdue utility bills to 559 families, $18,557 of which came from the Good Neighbor Fund.
