As the weather gets colder, PSEG Long Island is reminding its customers that financial assistance is available to help households with home heating expenses.
Programs that can help eligible customers offset heating and utility costs include the federally funded Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP); the United Way’s Project Warmth; and PSEG-LI’s own Household Assistance Program and the Residential Energy Affordability Partnership (REAP).
Registration for HEAP, which assists financially constrained New Yorkers based on household income, household size and primary heating source, is open until March 16, 2020.
Applications for Project Warmth open on Dec. 16. The program provides a one-time grant for fuel and/or fuel-related electricity hardships that is paid directly to the fuel vendor and/or utility.
The Household Assistance Program, available throughout the year, provides a monthly credit of $20 or more on electric bills for customers who receive benefits from federally funded programs such as HEAP, Medicaid, SNAP, TA, SSI or SNA.
REAP, another year-round program, helps customers who meet certain income guidelines lower energy costs by finding household energy-saving opportunities.
