Community Connections Resource Fair gets customers plugged in to City of Austin resources

October 16, 2019

Austin Energy is hosting the 9th Annual Community Connections Resource Fair on behalf of all City of Austin Utilities. The resource fair serves customers who are struggling to make ends meet in their households.

The family-friendly event is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lanier High School (soon to be Juan Navarro High School), 1201 Payton Gin Rd. Approximately 1,300 people are expected to be in attendance.

This free event assists customers who need help with meeting basic needs like paying utility bills. The resource fair gathers support from several civic and non-profit organizations that offer assistance, share information, and answer questions about how to save money on utility bills and more.

Approximately 140 exhibitors from the City of Austin, county and state agencies, and non-profit organizations will be on hand to provide information about social services in our community. Employers and job placement services representing the hospitality, restaurant, and retail industries will participate, accepting resumes and job applications from event participants.

Attendees can access on-site health screenings and discover ways to lower monthly utility bills through the City of Austin's Customer Assistance Program (CAP). Visitors can also enjoy free food, prizes, and activities for the kids.
