Fort Pierce to reopen utility assistance program Tuesday

FORT PIERCE— The city is reopening its utility-assistance program nearly one month after it distributed all its $125,000 in an hour. 

Beginning 10 a.m. Tuesday, residential customers of Fort Pierce Utilities Authority, Florida Power & Light Co. or any other utility company that provide water, sewer, gas, and/or electricity are eligible to receive up to $250.

The program will close after 200 applications, according to a city news release. 

To qualify, residents must be at or below 65% of the area median income. For example, a single person in St. Lucie County can’t earn more than $32,565 annually to qualify; a family of four can’t earn more than $46,475 annually.
