COPE (Citizen’s Option to Provide Energy), Utility Billing

Longmont’s C.O.P.E. (Citizen’s Option to Provide Energy) Program was established to provide direct emergency assistance to people in times of crisis. It is a cooperative agreement between the City and the OUR Center Inc. Specifically, COPE helps area residents to pay past due utility bills when all other resources are exhausted. Citizens donate to the program, either with a one-time payment, or with a monthly contribution added to their utility bill. No administrative funds are taken out of donated funds, 100% of contributions are used for utility bill payments. Customers requesting assistance from the OUR Center are screened to insure that their need is critical.

Residential customers: Sign up on-line for this neighbor helping neighbor program. Once we receive your information with your chosen monthly contribution amount, that amount will be billed on your next month’s utility bill.

Optional Billing and Voluntary Contributions

If you prefer, you can make a one-time donation to C.O.P.E. when you pay your bill on-line.

Office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:45 AM to 6:00 PM.
