If you live in Prince William County, we may be able to help you avoid having your utilities cut off.
Depending upon available funding, ACTS can often help if you have received a disconnect notice for your electric, gas, oil, propane, water or sewer services. However, we can only help with Dominion in eastern Prince William County (zip codes 22191, 22192, 22193, 22025, 22026, 22172, 22134). Since this is truly emergency assistance, we can only assist if you are currently in disconnect status, and we do not provide assistance for phone bills or gasoline vouchers.
For those who need assistance with a utility other than Dominion, if you make an appointment on a Tuesday evening (5pm or later), we will not be able to verify the amount owed and make a pledge to the utility company until the next business day, at which time we will contact you with the confirmation information.
If there are no appointments available before your disconnection date, take the next available appointment, even if it is a few weeks away. Then call your utility company, inform them you have an appointment with ACTS and request an extension. If this is the first time your account has been in arrears and/or you have not already received an extension, your utility company may grant you an extension.
