You have a way to help Statesville residents who are having a hard time paying their utility bill through a great program called Statesville Connects.

This voluntary assistance program is funded by donations from Statesville utility customers and other individuals/organizations. The City works with the Statesville Salvation Army, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance for low income families and people in crisis. Only Statesville residential utility customers who meet the Salvation Army’s requirements will receive assistance with their bills.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You can help by downloading the Statesville Connects form and let us know that you want to add $1, $5 or more to your monthly utility bill.  By simply checking a box, this amount will automatically be added to your monthly utility bill.  Monthly contributions will remain in effect until you notify customer service to discontinue.  You can also write a separate check to the Statesville Connects Program. (make checks payable to City of Statesville and designate for Statesville Connects.

Contributions to the Statesville Connects Program may be tax deductible.  The City will provide you with annual statements to document your total donation. Follow the directions on the form to notify the City of your participation.
