Families in our communities are struggling to make ends meeting, both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Low-income households pay approximately 16.5% of their annual incomes just on utility costs. This creates a disproportionate cost burden on low-to-moderate income Johnson County residents, limiting their expendible income to invest in simple but effective energy efficiency measures that can help them relieve this burden.
JCED is proud to introduce our newest program: the PAY-IT-FORWARD Program, a one time donation that directly purchases an energy care package for a low-income home in Johnson County to help them save money on their home utility bills. Each care package can provide up to $200 in annually water and energy savings for a two-person household — a 3X return on investment!
PAY-IT-FORWARD with a $65 donation to provide an energy care package to a low-income Johnson County household. PAY-IT-FORWARD+ and receive an energy care package for yourself in addition to providing one to a low-income Johnson County household.
