Franchise Fee Credit Program

Franchise Fee Credit Program

The Franchise Fee Program is closed for the rest of the year. We will start taking applications again in 2020 on February 5th. Online applications will be posted before or on February 4th.

The 2020 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.  We will post the new credits when we have them. Thank you for your understanding.
