Information for Utility Vendors
Texas Utility Help is a statewide program administered by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs with funding from LIHEAP and LIHWAP. This new program offers a streamlined online application process, so eligible Texas households can apply for both energy and water bill assistance in a single form.
Through this program, Texas renters and homeowners can apply for direct payments to utility companies on their behalf.
This will not only help make customers and utilities whole on past-due bills, it can also help avoid service disconnects, saving you time, money, and improving customer relations.
Get Paid Fast – Enrolling is Easy
Utility companies MUST be enrolled in the program to receive payment. Enrolling now ensures the program can send you payments (via mailed check) smoothly and efficiently.
TDHCA partnered with Yardi Systems, Inc. to make it easy for customers and vendors to participate in the program. To sign up, utility vendors should call 1-855-566-2057.
