AAA - 3/19/2018 10:07:07 AM

(NEWARK, NJ – March 15, 2018) As winter bills arrive, PSE&G reminds customers that the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is accepting applications for financial assistance with heating and medically-necessary cooling costs. The LIHEAP program is run by the State of New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.

“It’s so important for low income families who struggle to pay their utility bills to know that they can receive help,” said Greg Dunlap, PSE&G vice president of customer operations. “Under LIHEAP, those who are income eligible may receive an average of $300 toward their heating bills.”

LIHEAP eligibility is based solely on last month’s household gross income and household size. To be eligible for LIHEAP benefits, the applicant’s household gross income must meet monthly income guidelines listed on the chart below. For example, a family of four with a monthly income of $4,100 or less per month may be eligible and should apply.
