FUEL ASSISTANCE

The Department of Public Utilities extended their order prohibiting utility providers (electricity, gas, water) from shutting off a consumer for non-payment through July 1st. However, consumers are still responsible for the electricity/gas/water used, and will need to eventually pay the bill. If you're having trouble paying your utility bills, here are a few places that can help:

  • LIHEAP Program (household income cannot exceed 60% of the state median)


  • Self Help, Inc.- (508) 588-0447

 
Bag of Groceries
