Project CARE is a nonprofit program established by Fort Pierce Utilities Authority which provides emergency assistance to those in our community who have experienced a recent personal or family crisis that has placed them in danger of losing their utility service.
It is not the program’s intent to pay chronic or long term debt, rather it is to assist those who are experiencing temporary financial hardship.
Project CARE is funded by individuals in our community, either by utility customers who donate through their monthly utility bills or those who make one-time donations. These voluntary, tax-deductible donations go to assist local families in payment of their electric, water, sewer, natural gas, and garbage bills.
Funds for the program are collected by Fort Pierce Utilities Authority and are turned over to Mustard Seed Ministries, a local, nonprofit, community-assistance agency. Mustard Seed provides oversight of Project CARE and ensures that each applicant truly qualifies for the assistance.
Project CARE contributions go directly to help Fort Pierce Utilities Authority customers in need. We do not deduct any administrative costs, so your entire donation reaches those in financial distress right here in Fort Pierce. Our goal is to help without creating dependence. Applicants must pay a part of the bill themselves. Project CARE does not pay late fees or help the same household more than once in any twelve-month period.
Weatherization Outreach Programs were created under Title IV of the Energy Conservation and Production Act of 1976.The purpose of Weatherization programs is to perform home improvements to increase energy efficiency. Examples of weatherization include insulation, air sealing, moisture control, and ventilation. These improvements help lower utility cost and enhance the quality of life. On average, low-income families pay a greater percentage of their income towards their utility costs. Weatherization can maintain or improve respiratory health, mental health, physical safety, and wellness. Weatherization better manages temperatures and improves indoor air quality. Homes that have poor indoor quality or asthma triggers increase the risk of illness. A weatherized home is healthier, safer and more comfortable for living.
