CFPUA Assist: Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Partnership with United Way of the Cape Fear Region and The Salvation Army
to Aid Neighbors in Need


Some of our neighbors are faced with losing essential services like safe and reliable drinking water because of financial struggles caused by illness, unemployment and more. Since 2008, when Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) began its operations, we've teamed up with the United Way of the Cape Fear Area and the Salvation Army to help address these needs through CFPUA Assist: Neighbors Helping Neighbors.  The program provides one-time financial aid for bill payment based on need.  The United Way handles the funds that are raised and The Salvation Army determines who is assisted by the program.
