Small Business Emergency Assistance Program

  1. Anaheim Public Utilities Small Business Emergency Assistance Program (Program) provides financial assistance to small businesses and non-profit customers facing a temporary financial hardship due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible customers who are unable to pay the electric portion of their utility bill due to COVID-19 may receive a one-time $1,000 bill credit for electric utility assistance. Priority will be given to small businesses and non-profits that have not received any COVID-19 related City loans or grants and whose small business or non-profit has assisted in meeting community needs during the pandemic. Customers with multiple utility accounts will only be eligible to receive one electric bill credit per customer, unless otherwise approved by Anaheim Public Utilities.
