Utility Assistance Program

What is this program?

Young College Mother's Utility Assistance Program (UAP) provides financial assistance to eligible Florida households in meeting the costs of home utilities (heating, cooling, water, sewer).

Who is eligible for the program?

To be eligible for this benefit program, you must be a resident of Florida, currently enrolled in a two-or four year institution and you must need financial assistance with home utility costs.

The basic requirements that need to be met in order to receive financial assistance from the Utility Assistance Program include the following:

  • The applicant must be a resident of Florida; and

  • Be a U.S. citizen or legally admitted immigrant.

  • A person who participates in certain other benefit programs, such as SNAP, SSI, TANF, automatically meets the eligibility requirement.

  • The applicant needs to have full responsibility for paying the cost of energy bills for the primary home heating source.

  • A mother currently enrolled in an
    undergraduate program pursuing an Associate’s, a Bachelor's or
    Vocational degree.

UAP applicants are served on a first come, first serve. Customers are encouraged to apply early before funding expires.

Applying does not guarantee that you will automatically receive assistance. Depending on the funds available, you may be able to apply for assistance up to two times a year.
