Are you black? Because if you aren't, you need not apply.

I am not black, but I really need the assistance... I ask because I am at shut off notice. I was told that I would not qualify,,, which makes no sense!!!! When you call up there, they are not very helpful.

If you are on shut off notice they should still take your application; however, they will not post payment to your account for almost 2 months, so it's best to still pay your payment and seek assistance so you avoid disconnection. It does aid, but it's not an 'emergency' assistance this time. Hope this helps.

Well, they usually only tend to want to help black people. It's pretty much well known around here. Good luck anyways.

Yes, they will help you if you're black. You have to meet the requirements, but they still control who they want to help. In other words if you're not black they may not process your information as fast if even at all.

It doesn't matter if you black or not..if you don't or can't pay your utility bill then you will be sitting in darkness, with black people. lol... If you do your research this is a recession not only for blacks or whites but for everyone. I think you qualify with the black people, if you have a shut off notice...directing to whom ever is an idiot.

why is it rude? if i'm going to have to pay your bill i have the right to bitch about it. if you wanna get pissed because i'm bitching about paying your light bill or water bill or food bill then you can die o starvation. i have the right to complain. i don't want to take care of anyone. get a job or an education.

(cheechee) stupid i did have a job. a good job but one day i became ill and i was never able to get back in the work field. just because you apply for help it do not mean you haven't worked. i began work at 21 years of age. probably before you were born. just say some peoples need to get a job.
