The ABC: A Better Community utility donation program provides an opportunity for City of Mesa utility bill customers to easily contribute to their community by adding $5 to their monthly utility bill payment. Nonprofit agencies that provide food, shelter and other human services programs for Mesa residents are eligible to apply for the donated funds. Mesa ABC donations are fully tax-deductible.

Please join the other Mesa utility customers who contribute to the ABC program. You will help to make Mesa A Better Community!  The City of Mesa Housing and Community Development Department facilitates an annual application process for the CDBG, ESG, HOME and Human Services Programs. All non-profit agencies are encouraged to apply. To be eligible for funding, a representative from your non-profit agency must attend one of the program-specific mandatory training sessions offered each fiscal year.
