In all cases, the utility bill and payment history must be presented.

Among the eligibility requirements, it is also noted that applicants must comply with an income limit that does not exceed 75 percent of the federal level.

Other conditions such as the presence in the household of elderly adults, disabled individuals, and families facing financial crises will be considered.
