Deadline Extended for Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

PSE&G wants customers to know that the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is still open and accepting applications for financial assistance with heating and medically-necessary cooling costs. The new program deadline is August 31, 2018, according to LIHEAP program officials in the State of New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.

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.

LIHEAP

To receive LIHEAP assistance, customers may pay their heating costs directly, pay their landlord according to their usage, or have their heating included in their rent. Homeowners and those who rent are both eligible and should apply.

Download an application or pick one up at one of PSE&G's 16 walk-in Customer Service Centers. Remember, applications and copies of all requested documents must be submitted by mail or in person to the designated LIHEAP Intake Agency by August 31, 2018.

UNIVERSAL SERVICE FUND (USF)

The LIHEAP application is also an application for the Universal Service Fund (USF). USF is a program created by the State of New Jersey that can lower the amount low-income households pay for gas and electric bills with a monthly credit of $5 to $150. Applications for USF are accepted year-round.

OTHER PROGRAMS

PSE&G households who are not eligible for low income programs and are behind in their PSE&G bill should visit pseg.com/help for other programs like the PAGE Grant or NJ SHARES. Seniors over age of 65 or disabled adults collecting Social Security Disability may be eligible for the New Jersey Lifeline Credit program. NJ Lifeline provides a $225 yearly credit on your PSE&G bill.
