When the summer heat or the winter cold hits Tallahassee it can be an extremely difficult time for some local citizens. Fortunately, the City has a program that allows you to help those truly in need.
The city's Project Share program began in 1986, and since then has aided thousands of Tallahassee utility customers needing assistance. Project Share funds are administered locally by the Capital Area Community Action Agency through a screening process. Each application is carefully scrutinized to insure the funds are used by those in real need.
All tax-free pledges are automatically transferred into the Project Share account, making the funds immediately available to help those citizens in Tallahassee who need it the most.
