Energy Assistance Program

Circulation Tables (First Floor) 120 Academy Street, Trenton, NJ, United States

Humanitaire Chretien Sans Frontiere will help eligible low-income households that are having difficulty paying their heating and cooling bills to apply for financial assistance. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP): The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is designed to help low-income families and individuals meet home heating and medically necessary cooling costs. This year, the application period is October 1 to June 30 of the following year. Residents of the state of New Jersey who fall within the income limits (60% of the State Median Income) can apply for financial assistance to reduce their energy burden for gas (heating), medically necessary cooling and electric. To be eligible for LIHEAP benefits, the applicant household must be responsible for home heating or cooling costs, either directly or included in the rent; and have gross income at or below 60% of the State Median Income. Persons who live in public housing and/or receive rental assistance are not eligible for assistance unless they pay for their own heating costs directly to the fuel supplier. The amount of the LIHEAP heating benefit is determined by income, household size, fuel type, and heating region. The Universal Service Fund (USF): The USF is a program created by the State of New Jersey to help make natural gas and electric bills more affordable for low-income households. If you are eligible, USF can lower the amount you pay for gas and electricity. To be eligible, a household gross income must be at or below 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, (please refer to income guidelines listed below), and pay more than 2% of its annual income for electric, or more than 2% for natural gas. If a household has electric heat, it must spend more than 4% of its annual income on electricity to be eligible.
