SoCalGas customers still have an opportunity to apply for the company’s Gas Assistance Fund to help pay their natural gas bill. Income-qualified customers can receive a one-time grant of up to $500.
The Gas Assistance Fund is a joint effort between SoCalGas and United Way of Greater Los Angeles. Working with non-profit organizations throughout SoCalGas’s service territory, United Way of Greater Los Angeles helps income-qualified customers pay their natural gas bill with a one-time grant of up to $400 per household. If the eligible applicant or a household member is age 55 or older, an additional $100 is available – for a maximum grant of up to $500.
“Through a record $6 million donation to SoCalGas’s Gas Assistance Fund, over 10,000 families have applied and benefited from grants of up to $500 to help pay their gas bills. However, funds remain. To reach more customers who might need assistance with paying their bills, we expanded the eligibility requirements and encourage customers to visit our website to see if they now qualify,” said Gillian Wright, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “We also offer useful resources on energy conservation, assistance programs to manage energy consumption, and make energy-efficient home improvements to help lower customer bills.”
