Customers needing assistance paying their utility bill may contact Community Action Partnership of North Alabama (CAPNA).

Customers can get the latest update on applying for assistance by calling CAPNA at 256-260-4050 or by visiting www.capna.org. Additional assistance may be available through other local community support organizations. 

CAPNA is also offering rent and mortgage assistance for those affected by COVID-19.
