Electric Energy Assistance
The Electric Assistance Program (EAP) provides qualifying utility customers with a discount of 8% to 77% off their monthly electric bill, depending on their household income. Renters, subsidized renters and homeowners who receive an electric bill may apply for EAP. Eligibility is determined by the total household income and the number of household members. Eligible customers receive a discount on their electric bill every month. The program helped up to 15,684 households cope with their utility costs in 2013.
