COVID Crisis Utility Assistance

  1. Maricopa County is no longer taking applications for COVID Crisis Utility Assistance.

    Maricopa County understands the serious economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals and families throughout Maricopa County and has dedicated significant resources for utility assistance. Unfortunately, the number of requests for utility assistance has exceeded the amount of funding available. No new applications will be accepted.

At this time, Maricopa County is no longer accepting applications for COVID Crisis Rental Assistance (CCRA). If you have already applied, your application will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds has been expended. Each applicant will receive an email and/or a phone call regarding their application status.  Completed applications that were received but were not able to receive assistance will be retained for future consideration if other federal funds with the same eligibility criteria become available.  

For residents living outside the cities of Glendale, Mesa, and Phoenix, utility assistance may still be available, on a much more limited scale, through Community Action Program (CAP) offices located throughout the County.  Please note, you must reside in the CAP office’s service area in order to apply.
