We also provide the National Energy Assistance Referral (NEAR) service, which refers households needing assistance to a local LIHEAP office and other assistance entities if available.

New Fuel Assistance Grant Program for MA

September 21, 2018 – The Natural Gas Fuel Assistance Program in Massachusetts will provide $3 million in funding to programs that assist Massachusetts households in paying for their natural gas service. The two-year grant program will start Nov. 1, 2018 and will end Oct. 31, 2020.

Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General, said, “Every year, tens of thousands of Massachusetts families struggle to pay their heating bills. My goal with this new program is to make sure our residents have the financial assistance they need to stay warm during the cold winter months.”

The grant is open to programs run through state agencies, municipalities, charitable organizations, and nonprofit organizations. Eligible programs may include those that are providing direct assistance to consumers by subsidizing their natural gas heating bills or are providing indirect assistance by helping residents implement energy-efficiency measures designed to lower their natural gas heating bills.
