The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program is a federally-funded program that assists low income families with paying home energy bills. If you do not qualify for this program, United Way offers utility assistance for qualifying households.
For immediate help in paying electric costs, register with the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program through an application process or a phone call to your water and electric utility company. Depending on your need, the program offers crisis assistance for households threatened with utility disconnection or broken equipment that may prevent access to water and power. Regardless of your situation, reach out to your utility company to explore your options to avoid any utility shut off.
