Arizona State Funds

Arizona State Funds

  • The Neighbors Helping Neighbors Energy Assistance Fund checkoff became effective in 1992. Individual taxpayers can designate a portion of their refund as a voluntary contribution to the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fund, which is administered by the LIHEAP grantee, the Department of Economic Security. The fund is designed to help qualified low-income households with one-time crisis/emergency utility bill payments, energy conservation and home weatherization.
  • Utility Repair, Replacement and Deposit (URRD) is a program funded by unclaimed utility deposits. The program was established by the State Legislature in 1989. URRD money goes to the Department of Economic Security, the LIHEAP grantee, which then distributes it to community action agencies. URRD provides emergency assistance to low-income customers who need to make a utility deposit or have a heating or cooling related appliance or system repaired or replaced. Assistance is limited to once a year and $600 per year.
  • Arizona Housing Trust Fund is generated by the State's unclaimed property taxes. Funds are used for emergency repair or replacement of heaters, coolers and other weatherization needs and utility payments.
  • County and city funds for energy and water assistance and weatherization.
