Franchise Fee Credit Utility Program

The 2024 City of Topeka Franchise Fee Credit Program will start on Wednesday, January 31, 2024.

The 2024 Franchise Fee Credit Program for the City of Topeka is administered by CRC in order to provide eligible households a standardized credit for utility services, which can be applied for once a year. 

To qualify for the City of Topeka Franchise Fee Credit Program you must be: a Topeka resident, have a household income for 2023 of less than $37,750; AND meet the age, disability, or dependent child qualifications. This means that you must be 55 and older, disabled OR have a dependent child living at the home under the age of 18. Applicants must show proof of address, income from 2023, KS Driver’s license or KS ID, birth certificate for children if qualified by a dependent child in the household, and Social Security cards for every individual in the household in order to meet the residency and income requirements.

Please remember that it may take up to 90 days for the credits to be applied to your accounts, after your application is processed. This is not an emergency assistance program, and funds will be sent directly to the respective utility companies.

Any questions call 785-233-1365.
