Weekend Hours Makes Receiving Help easier for Families in Need
Metro Action Opens on Saturdays to help pay utility bills of low-income families
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Metropolitan Action Commission began
Utility Help Saturdays earlier this month in an effort to make receiving help
with utility payments easier for families.
The Metro Action Commission will be open this Saturday and
next Saturday from 10am until 2pm to help customers complete their application
as well as check for all documentation needed to apply.
“Sometimes it is harder for families, particularly if they
work during the week, to visit our office for help with completion or
submission of energy assistance applications,” said Lisa McCrady, Public
Nearly 20% more customers have been helped with their utility
payments since this time last year. Many applications are able to be processed
within a few days after submission due to the agency’s express service and
staff designated to process applications.
