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 simply 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 2016, The Caring Place helped 3,447 people with utility bills by providing over $262,447, $43,490 of which came from the Georgetown Good Neighbor Fund.
