2021 VOCA Training: …But how will I keep the lights on?” : Addressing Utility Needs for Survivors of Domestic Violence (Webinar)
June 2, 2021 - 1 Hour
Access to affordable heat, electricity, and telephone service is absolutely critical for survivors of domestic violence to establish a safe and healthy home. Survivors commonly face burdensome challenges to connecting and maintaining utility service – often as a direct result of economic abuse.
In this session, the Pennsylvania Utility Law Project covers the essentials of utility billing, collections, and terminations, addresses unique utility protections for survivors of domestic violence, and shares best practice strategies to assist survivors in transition to connect and maintain affordable utility services.
