Have you contributed to your gas or electric
company's hardship funds? Hardship funds are donated by consumers and are
matched by the company. The funds provide assistance to low income customers
to help them pay their bills. Community-based organizations distribute the
funds to needy customers in your area. Are you interested in donating?
There's a section on your electric and gas bills where you can add a
donation to your bill. For more information, you can also contact your
electric or gas company.
If you're having trouble paying your bills, you
may want to see if you qualify for low income assistance or hardship funds.
