New Jersey Natural Gas


08/23/2023 - For Immediate Release

Wall, N.J. — This September and October, New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) will host its annual Energy Assistance Days with 23 events throughout Monmouth, Ocean and Morris Counties. These in-person events provide customers with an opportunity to learn about and apply for grants to help pay their energy bills.

Representatives from NJNG and state-designated agencies will be available to answer customers’ questions and provide detailed information about specific programs, including:

  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) †*
  • Universal Service Fund (USF) and the New Jersey Fresh Start Program†*
  • Payment Assistance for Gas and Electric (PAGE) †*
  • New Jersey SHARES†*
  • NJNG’s Gift of Warmth*

The in-person, bilingual assistance teams will help customers navigate the entire process, identifying programs that work best for them and providing hands-on support with the application.

“Energy Assistance Days are designed to meet a wide range of our customers’ needs, and this year New Jersey Natural Gas is adding more locations to make it even easier for customers to get the help they need,” said Maria Delaplain, manager of Energy Assistance at New Jersey Natural Gas. “Households of various income levels, including those experiencing unanticipated financial hardships, are encouraged to come in and learn about available resources. Customers should not assume they do not qualify. For example, a family of four with a household income of up to $133,237 may be eligible.”

To apply for assistance, customers must bring:
  • Social Security cards for all household members.
  • Government-issued ID for applicant.
  • Proof of income for all household members over the age of 18.
  • Deed or rental lease.
  • Recent natural gas and electricity bills.

Attendees may qualify for available weatherization programs from New Jersey Comfort Partners*† or NJNG*. These programs are accessible at no cost to income-eligible customers and are designed to help them save energy and lower their energy bills. Customers behind on their energy bills also may be eligible to schedule payment arrangements to help bring their accounts current.
