If you need a little extra assistance getting through the season, there there are programs in Colorado Springs and Pueblo that can help if you're having trouble making ends meet. 

Colorado Springs Utilities offers budget billing, which spreads your payments out evenly throughout the year. You can also schedule your payment date, so it's easy to pick a date after you've been paid. 

Colorado Springs Utilities Project COPE also helps customers who are having trouble paying their bills. Last year they helped almost 2500 households!
