Many of Ashland’s low-income residents have difficulty paying their basic monthly utility services. The City of Ashland’s Round Up program allows Ashland utility customers to voluntarily round up their utility bills to the nearest dollar. The additional funds accumulated will be devoted to assisting low-income Ashland residents with their monthly utility bills.
Customers who qualify for low-income assistance are screened to determine eligibility using the current Federal poverty guidelines. In addition, occasionally customers who don’t necessarily qualify as low-income may need some assistance due to personal difficulties. These funds will be used in an emergency to help others on a one time per year only basis.
Many public utilities around the country operate a “round up” program to provide public purpose funding to assist others. This is a voluntary program. Please join the Ashland Round Up program by completing the form below.
