Fuel assistance and weatherization assistance programs help
eligible households pay winter heating bills and make their homes more
energy-efficient. If your total household income is below 60 percent of state
median income as shown below, call your local Community Action Agency for more
information on payment assistance and energy-saving services that might be
available to you. They will certify that you meet the income guidelines of the
program, and will notify Columbia Gas if you are eligible. If approved for this
program, not only will you receive payment assistance towards your bill, but
your monthly bill will also be reduced by 25% each month retroactively back to
November. You must renew your eligibility each year with the Community Action
Agency. If you are eligible for this program, you are also eligible for the Company's Arrearage Forgiveness program where a portion of your balance is forgiven each month when you make the calculated budget payment.
