Utility Help is Available

The winter moratorium on utility shut-offs ended on April 1st.  Here's what you can do if you are behind on your bills:

  • Call your utility company and ask about payment plans, payment assistance programs, and forgiveness plans. As long as you're making scheduled payments, you're protected from shutoffs.
  • Apply for heating assistance. If your household income is 60% or less of the state median income, you're eligible for LIHEAP and can find out how to apply at mass.gov/hed/fuel.
