PSE&G customers still have time to apply for LIHEAP to receive:
- Heating benefits
- Medically-necessary cooling benefits
- Additional financial assistance of up to $450 in LIHEAP Emergency Assistance (for residential electric and gas heating customers who have already applied for, or received, LIHEAP benefits and are struggling to pay winter heating bills.) For LIHEAP Emergency Assistance, customers must have a shut-off notice on their PSE&G account.
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is taking applications until May 31, 2017. In addition to financial assistance towards winter heating and medically necessary cooling bills, LIHEAP also screens program applicants for another payment assistance program, the Universal Service Fund (USF), which provides low income households with a monthly credit of $5 to $150. There are also payment assistance programs for clients who are not low income, but have fallen behind on their energy bills.
Attached is a quick reference guide on all programs, as well as a LIHEAP application.
