The Energy Assistance Program provides Niagara families with access to financial assistance for their energy needs, such as electricity and heat.
Eligibility depends on the number of people living in the house and the combined household income.
Low-income customers can get up to $500 in emergency assistance for your electricity bills ($600 if your home is heated electrically) and $500 for gas bills.
The assistance is only available if you are behind on your bill – or in arrears – and may face having your service shut off (disconnected). It is for emergency situations only and is not meant to provide you with ongoing help to pay your bills.
