Do you need help paying your rent and utilities?

The City of Killeen has launched the CARES Act which will offer financial assistance to Killeen residents who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to KWTX, applicants must have lost their jobs or seen a reduction in hours of employment. 

The CARES Act will assist with rental expenses and bills dated from March 27 and after. Utility bills like sewer, water, and garbage will be paid directly to the account. 

Funding is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Due to limited funding, the application process is a first come first served basis and limited to one application per household. Residents can find applications on the city’s website.
