Utility Assistance

Behind on Utilities? Facing a Shut off?
You are not alone. We Can Help!

If are behind on utilities or shut off, first:

If you receive a denial from any of the above programs and are a resident of Urbana, contact Cunningham Township at (217) 384-4144.


  • We are currently providing utility assistance to residents of Urbana who are actively disconnected or have a disconnection notice for their power/gas/water bill
  • You may only receive utility assistance through our township once on a 12 month basis.

It is always a good idea to call the utility company and negotiate a payment plan:

  • Ameren Illinois – 1-800-755-5000
  • Illinois American Water – 1-800-422-2782

At Township we can track your case, help get documents, and help advocate for you. Just call 217-384-4144 or stop by at 205 W. Green St. in Urbana across from the library.

We thank the many generous donors to the Unitarian Universalist Utility Fund for supporting your neighbors in need.
