Northeast Florida Community Action Agency Named PSC Helping Hand


TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing the Northeast Florida Community Action Agency as a PSC Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program and energy and water conservation.

“For area residents in need, the Northeast Florida Community Action Agency is a vital resource, and we are pleased that the agency uses PSC materials to help its clientele,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “I also want to commend Lisa Mohn, Family and Community Service Manager, Nassau and Baker Counties, for assisting our outreach efforts by reaching those who can most benefit from the information.”

Begun last year, each month the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers stretch their resources to meet their monthly bills.

“We are pleased to be named a PSC Helping Hand,” said Mohn. “PSC conservation brochures and Lifeline materials are essential to helping families with young children, the elderly, and the disabled learn strategies they can use every day to impact their budgets and make a difference in their overall quality of life. We appreciate the partnership.”
