What is power and utility company in New York?
Until I know that, some options may be
New York State Electricity and Gas runs and provides the Power Partner Program, which will lowers the monthly base service charge on both, or either of, your electric and natural gas bills of eligible customers. The program will also help pay off any unpaid balance of power bills on accounts in trouble. 1-800-284-7988 They also run the Matching Incentive Payment Program, which offers a cash grant of up to $600 in funds and the money will be available to eligible NYSEG residential customers facing utility or gas service disconnection due to nonpayment of their energy bills.
Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation offers it customers the AffordAbility Payment Plan. This program will help enables qualified customers of NIMO to make an affordable monthly payment toward their Niagara Mohawk utility bill coupled with an arrearage forgiveness arrangement, so can prevent a disconnection. Phone 1-800-724-8888

Where in New Jersey? Here is info on NJ programs.
http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/new ... grams.html
Try this for charities, non-profits, and other organizations. Without knowing your county or utility company, difficult for me to provide help on a possible disconnection. I can say that the state of New Jersey offers the Universal Service Fund as well as the Lifeline Assistance Program. Ask your power company about these options.

Please respond quickly! They are going to shut our power off on Thursday 10-15-2010 and they will not make arrangements or exceptions other than a faxed pledge from an org. such as yourself. My name is Angela . Thank you in advance for your help. I have 3 children and cannot live without electricity! Please help us! We live in Rochester New York and do not know who to call for help.

Gulf Coast Community Services Association 713 393-4700 and the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston ((713) 526-4611) are two non-profits and agencies in Houston and Harris County Texas. While you may not be able to get assistance today, you need to contact places as soon as possible. Most have an application process, and the fact is it just will take time to get help with utilities or any other bills or expenses.

Did you look into the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) crisis component? If not, do you. It provides emergency assistance to help when dealing with an imminent disconnection or crisis situation. So your utility company is JEA? What state exactly do they serve? LIHEAP does try to prioritize the help that is needed by the disabled too, so it sounds like it may be the best option for you in your situation.

Who is your utility company in Nebraska? Regardless here is extensive information on heating and utility assistance in Nebraska. Most energy companies offer various financial resources and assistance to help people avoid disconnections and/or pay power and heating bills. For example, Aquila in Nebraska runs the Heat Aid Fund as well as HeatShare. Phone number for the programs are 402-898-5966.

I need help this month in Tampa Bay with rent and utilities. I have COPD+a neurology disease, CRPS. Last month my medical expenses totaled over $500 no counting my Medicare premium.I am due for electric shut off 8-18. I can not get state help because my gross income without deductions is $200 over poverty level. I am a disabled veteran on SS disability. If you can help in any way, I would be very grateful. I live in fear of being without electric service or worse yet, being evicted. Thank you so much.
