Urgent Appeal from Central Louisville Community Ministries
There are currently no funds available in Louisville to assist those with past due LG&E bills who are at risk of disconnection. CLCM has served between 63 and 86 clients per month this year with LG&E assistance, keeping those folks in their homes (many landlords evict if utilities are not paid) with lights and heating/cooling on. Yesterday we have started having to turn people away, as our grant funds have been expended. Normally our grant funds would last the entire calendar year, but this year has been extraordinary. Federal assistance for Covid has ended, and with gas and grocery prices so high, people can’t afford to pay their bills. Any funding provided would go directly to our clients in our neighborhood needing assistance to keep their utilities on. Thank you!
