State energy assistance
The federally funded Home Energy Assistance Target (HEAT) Program helps low-income households with energy costs. It is administered by the Utah Department of Workforce Services through local agencies.
Tenants and landlords: The Utah Housing Assistance Program has resources available from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program to help renters unable to pay their utilities and rent due to circumstances related to COVID-19. Funds are available for a limited time.
Lend A Hand
Lend A Hand, which is administered by The Salvation Army, provides energy assistance with donated funds. Households with senior and disabled family members are given priority.
