We Care Fund, utility help, help paying bills, terminations, service suspensionCLEARWATER, Fla. – Because of the need to shelter in place and many people losing their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of your neighbors may be having financial difficulties. The city of Clearwater’s We Care Fund was created for times such as these, to give temporary assistance to those in need by helping to pay their utility bills. Residents can sign up to contribute at myclearwater.com/wecare.

The city of Clearwater's We Care Fund is a community partnership program funded by the city’s Utility Customer Service Department and voluntary contributions from utility customers that assist needy families and individuals in the community with paying for water, wastewater, solid waste and gas bills.

The city of Clearwater contributes annually to the We Care Fund, and contributions also are requested from utility customers each year. Continuing gifts of just one dollar or two each month can mean so much to someone struggling to get by. Funds are released throughout the year to a local branch of the Salvation Army to provide temporary assistance to eligible customers of city of Clearwater utilities.

The We Care Fund has been helping Clearwater folks with temporary utility bill payment assistance since 1992. Each year, the We Care Fund has helped hundreds in the Clearwater community. To donate or for more information, sign up online at myclearwater.com/wecare, or contact the city’s Utility Customer Service Department at (727) 562-4600.
