State of Texas, Sam Houston EC Provide Help for Summer Electricity Bills



As outside temperatures climb and electricity use increases, utility bill assistance is available for qualifying Sam Houston Electric Cooperative members.

The state’s Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) can provide up to $1,200 for help with utility bills. Please be aware that before assistance may be provided, individuals must meet specific eligibility requirements, and assistance may only be available pending funding.

Call 877-399-8939 to connect with your local CEAP administrator, or call the direct phone numbers listed below.

Additional funds are available through the same local CEAP administrators from Sam Houston EC’s Helping Hands program.

The Cooperative’s directors, employees and members contribute to the Helping Hands program each month to provide bill assistance to fellow members in need.

If you are interested in lending a Helping Hand, call our office to join the Helping Hands program at 800-458-0381.
