Living Assistance

The city of Northglenn is involved with a number of organizations in helping its residents.

Utility Bill Assistance Program

The Northglenn Community Foundation’s Utility Assistance Program is designed to provide grants to eligible residential City of Northglenn Utility customers with a temporary, short-term payment of their city utility bill.

The Utility Assistance Program is funded by fundraisers throughout the year as well as by individual contributions from people who want to help their neighbors, family, and friends that may be having difficulty making ends meet.

Applications for assistance are reviewed and grants are awarded monthly based on a number of criteria. Grants are paid directly to the recipient's city utility account. Grant applications are available at the foundation's Web site or you can stop by and pick up an application at the City Hall front desk, Northglenn Recreation Center or within the Senior Center.

Applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on the first of each month (or the Friday before if the first falls on a Weekend or a holiday) at the Northglenn City Hall.

The Northglenn Community Foundation is a 501c3 all volunteer non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible.

National League of Cities Prescription Discount Card

Do you need prescription drugs that are not covered by insurance? There is a way to help cut the cost of these medications.

The National League of Cities and CVS Caremark have made the Prescription Discount Program available to Northglenn residents.

From its start in December 2008 through the end of May 2011, the program has saved 790 Northglenn residents $13,197.21, an average price savings of 17.6 percent.

The cards are available at City Hall, the Northglenn Recreation Center and local churches and apartment complexes. Nine out of 10 pharmacies nationwide participate in the program. The card can be used anytime a prescription is not covered by insurance. There are not any restrictions and no limits on how many times you may use your card.

For more information, go to the Web site or call toll-free 1-888-620-1749.
