Elizabethtown Gas Energy Assistance Program

As winter approaches and households start to receive higher heating bills, we want to remind them that programs exist to help with utility costs.  Elizabethtown Gas is excited to be able to provide updated assistance program information and income guideline changes. Some changes include a higher monthly maximum benefit amount of $180 and changes to the USF Fresh Start program which may forgive your current outstanding balance. 

On October 1, 2021, Utility Assistance programs were expanded for a two-year period to better assist those impacted by the continuing pandemic. Income guidelines for assistance programs have been increased to allow more households to be eligible. For example, a family of 4 can make up to $106,000 and be eligible to receive assistance. In some cases, entire past due balances may be erased. Information on all available programs can be found on our website at www.elizabethtowngas.com/residential/energy-assistance.

 The below Energy Assistance Fact Sheet provides contact information for agencies that can provide more detailed information and program applications. Additionally, all programs have an online application, where applicants may apply for assistance without leaving their home.
