FILE A CONSUMER COMPLAINT
If you are having an issue with a product or service and are not receiving an adequate response from the vendor, you can file a consumer complaint with the Attorney General's Office HERE.
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
Project Bread can help with food assistance, SNAP applications, and other food aid questions. They are open Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM and Saturday from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.
