In one county of Texas, low-income veterans are being supported by a program created to cover their unpaid utility bills.

The initiative, run by the Hidalgo County Community Service Agency, was funded by a $300,000 grant awarded by the state’s Texas Veteran’s Commission.

If an honorably-discharged veteran can show an annual income of less than $24,000, the agency will pay up to $600 for electric and other utilities, keeping their lights on and water running.
