If you need help paying your utility bills, you should know that Monday, April 30, is the deadline to apply for PSE&G’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and for LIHEAP emergency assistance.

LIHEAP provides assistance to families and individuals to help pay for home heating and medically necessary cooling costs. Homeowners should apply and renters may qualify if their heat is included in their rent. Only the last month of income counts toward eligibility, so many newly unemployed or underemployed may now qualify. Income-eligible households typically receive about $300 toward heating costs and $160 toward electric costs for those needing medically necessary cooling.

Customers who have already received LIHEAP assistance and who still are having difficulty paying their winter heating bills may be eligible for additional LIHEAP emergency assistance. To apply, customers must heat with PSE&G, have an LIHEAP payment posted on their PSE&G heating (gas or electric) bill and have a shut-off notice. If approved, they may receive up to $450 toward their bill.

To see if your household is income-eligible for LIHEAP and and to find out where to apply, visit www.pseg.com/help  or call 1-800-510-3102 Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Applications also are available at the PSE&G’s 16 walk-in Customer Service Centers listed on your utility bill.
