Utility Assistance – Federal

Texas Neighborhoods Services provides utility assistance through the State of Texas Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program.

The Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is a utility assistance program. CEAP is designed to assist low income households in meeting their immediate energy needs and to encourage consumers to control energy costs for years to come through energy education. The CEAP involves integration of all LIHEAP-funded programs, thereby enhancing efficiency and effectiveness of services provided to clients and eliminating duplication of services. The TNS CEAP is administered in the following counties of North Central Texas.

Erath, Hood, Parker, Palo Pinto, Johnson, Somervell and Wise Counties.  If you are seeking Electric, Gas or Propane assistance, please fill out the application and you can either submit it by e-mail ( application@txns.org ), regular USPS mail, or in person at one of our locations. (Currently in person applications are not being taken at our locations due to COVID-19 crisis.  Please use e-mail or USPS to submit your applications)

Here’s the link to the 2020 application.

Utility Assistance – Non-Federal

In addition to the Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) – TNS does receive funds from some of its utility company partners serving its counties.  Should you not qualify for Federal Assistance under CEAP, TNS will automatically check to see if you qualify under one of its partners programs.  Each partner program is different and has different requirements.
