Community Action

Kent County Community Action (KCCA) is continuing to accept applications for water/ sewer assistance for all residents of Kent County. Lists are CLOSED for electric, gas, deliverable fuels, rental and mortgage arrears assistance.

For our lists that are open, interested people should call 616-632-7950 and follow the prompts to leave a voicemail on our assistance line. We are encouraging everyone to speak clearly and include their full address in the message. We are discouraging callers from leaving more than one message as this will only slow down the process.
