Monthly Bills

First of the Month Bills Due

April 1st : For many Arizonans and businesses this is the day bills are due -- mortgage, rent, utilities, and internet, among others. A few reminders for your residents that may be struggling:

  • Renters: Eviction orders are halted for anyone quarantined or facing economic hardships due to COVID-19 (link here).
  • Utilities: APS, SRP, TEP, and six electric cooperatives have agreed that no customer will lose power or assessed late fees or interest due to inability to pay during the COVID-19 emergency (link here).
  • Banking and mortgages: Arizona banks are suspending home evictions and foreclosures for at least 60 days, with the potential to extend that period for the duration of the emergency declarations. Most banks have adopted payment deferral programs. If your residents -- homeowners, borrowers, small businesses --- are struggling to make payments, they should contact their banks directly to discuss payment deferral plans for the emergency (link here).
  • Internet: Wireless and wireline internet service providers have committed to not terminating service for any residence or small business because of inability to pay due to COVID-19 as well as waiving late fees for those with COVID-19 economic circumstances (link here). Many internet providers have deals specific for the COVID-19 emergency and special offers for families with K-12 students (those offers are compiled on this page by the Arizona Commerce Authority).
  • As a reminder, the Arizona Commerce Authority has compiled resources for small businesses and workers facing employment loss on this page.
