The City of Lawrenceville is excited to announce the Round-up Program, a new philanthropic effort offering an opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors. Program funds are intended to provide direct benefit to City of Lawrenceville customers in the utility service area experiencing hardship - improving their quality of life.

What is a Round-up Program?
Your City of Lawrenceville utility bill will be “rounded up” to the next dollar amount each month and proceeds will be placed into a special fund used to benefit those needing assistance with their utility bills.  

How does it work? 
For example, if your monthly bill is $48.51, you’ll pay $49.00 and the extra 49 cents will go toward the Round-up Program.  Most participants will give an average of 50 cents per month or $6 per year.  

Who does it help? 
To qualify for assistance through the Lawrenceville Utilities Round-up Program, individuals will need to apply through a local nonprofit partner of the City and must be a Lawrenceville Utilities Customer. The City of Lawrenceville has partnered with the Lawrenceville Response Center to administer the program and qualify customers for assistance. For additional information, visit the Payment Assistance page.
