How to Apply
To apply for GAF assistance, please contact the non-profit organization in your area.
New income guidelines have made the program available to even more customers, as outlined below. These funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and eligible customers can apply until the funds are depleted.
Need Help Paying Your Gas Bill?
If you're having difficulty paying your natural gas bill, the Gas Assistance Fund (GAF) may be able to provide you, or someone you know, with a one-time grant for the amount of the gas bill, not to exceed $400.00. If the eligible applicant is age 55+ or has an older adult (55+) living in the household, an additional $100 is available for a maximum grant of up to $500. Additionally, those facing certain financial hardships may be eligible for extra grant funding. Make an appointment with your local agency to see what your household may qualify for.
The Gas Assistance Fund is a joint effort of SoCalGas® and United Way of Greater Los Angeles. United Way works with non-profit organizations throughout our service territory to manage the program.
