Fort Pierce, FL, October 23, 2020 – At the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) Special Meeting, the Board voted to delay electric disconnects until further information is reviewed at their November 17 meeting. This allows FPUA customers additional time to seek and receive assistance from COVID-19 relief programs. “We believe the decision of the Board provides our customers additional opportunities to make payment arrangements to avoid disconnections in the future”, said Charlie Frank Matthews, Board Chairman. “We will continue to evaluate program enhancements to assist our customers through the pandemic.” 

FPUA will continue to waive late fees and charges through December 31, 2020. FPUA will begin offering a good faith payment program immediately. Residential customers with existing payment arrangements that make a good faith payment equal to 25% of their bill (up to a maximum of $100) will receive a modified payment plan. Commercial customers with existing payment arrangements that make a payment equal to 25% of their bill will also receive a modified payment plan. Please contact Customer Service at 772-466-1600, x 3900, to discuss the available opportunities. 

Assistance Programs Available to FPUA Customers

The Project Care COVID-19 Relief Fund is available to residential customers experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic. Please contact Mustard Seed Ministries of Fort Pierce at 772-465-6021 or the ALPI appointment line at 844-356-8138. Appointments are required and eligibility guidelines apply. Mustard Seed and ALPI will be streamlining the approval process through the use of a Residential Hardship Affidavit, to qualify more of our customers in a shorter time period.
