Utility Bill Assistance
If you are facing a utility shut-off or are low on fuel supplies, GLCAP can help. We can help provide assistance with utility payments, including help during the winter months through the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (EHEAP), and help during the summer through the Summer Crisis program.
Summer Crisis Program
The GLCAP Summer Crisis Program begins July 1 and continues through September 30, 2021 to provide residents with electric bill payments, as well as fans or air conditioner units to keep cool this summer. Eligible low-income households must have an older household member (60 years or older), or must provide physician documentation that cooling assistance is needed for a household member’s health. In some cases, the program can assist with central air conditioning unit repairs. The program can also assist households that have a disconnect notice, have disconnected utilities, or are trying to establish new service on an electric bill.
Due to high call volumes for summer cooling assistance, callers may experience 10-15 minute hold times.
