Utility Bill Help Is Available
Posted: March 2, 2016
There are a number of assistance programs for eligible households who are having difficulty paying their energy bills.
Families don’t have to be “low-income” to receive help paying their heating bills—several programs provide assistance to moderate income customers, senior citizens and people on disability.
For example, under one program, Payment Assistance Gas and Electric (PAGE), someone who grosses $105,000 and has four dependents—including him or herself—may qualify for a grant of up to $1,400 if they have fallen behind on their payments.
