United Way Utility Assistance Application 2023-2024
Need help paying utility bills? United Way can help you with that.
If you need any help at any point during your application, please call 844-211-4994 Monday-Thursday 9am-4pm.
The following programs below can be accessed through this application:
MEAP (Michigan Energy Assistance Program) is a statewide program providing assistance with energy bills. United Way can provide MEAP assistance statewide. You can also dial 2-1-1 for all other types of assistance — including food, housing and rent.
To be enrolled in MEAP, you must be approved for State Emergency Relief (SER) first. You will need documentation including your most recent utility bill, ID, and pay stubs/benefit statements for all household members.
If you’ve already applied for utility assistance through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services SER application and would like to additionally apply for affordable payment plans, including DTE Energy’s LSP program, Consumer’s Energy’s CARE program and Semco Energy Gas Company’s Monthly Assistance Program (MAP), please click here.
WRAP (Water Residential Assistance Program) provides assistance with water bills based on your household income. United Way can provide WRAP assistance for Oakland County residents only. If you need water assistance and you live outside of Oakland County, please call 2-1-1 to receive a referral for the agency that serves your area.
