Assistance Programs

If you or someone you know is having trouble paying utility bills this winter, there are several programs that can help customers afford their bills. Funding is limited for many of these programs, however; and due to sharply rising prices, interest in these programs is high. As a result, some programs may have waiting lists.

In addition, you may be able to get help from other programs managed by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, your city or town, the New Hampshire Community Action Agencies, local churches and the Salvation Army. These programs are generally for low-income families and families in crisis.
