Gas Assistance Fund

The Gas Assistance Fund (GAF) offers a one-time grant to help customers pay their natural gas bills

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 $100.00. If the eligible applicant is 55+ or has an older adult (55+) living in the household, an additional $100 is available for a maximum grant of up to $200. Make an appointment with your local agency to submit an application.
