Energy Assistance Day Coming To LBI Tomorrow

With the jobless rate at an all time high and the winter months rapidly approaching, some are worried about how they can afford to heat their homes.  New Jersey Natural Gas is listening loud and clear.

Tomorrow on Long Beach Island, the utility company will host an Energy Assistance Day.  Representatives from the company and the Community Action Program Agencies will be there talking about various plans that could fit your needs and take off some of the strain.  Because of the ever-growing number of people out of work or who are on a fixed income, the turnout is expected to be huge.

NJNG spokesman Mike Kinney says “we have several solutions for these people.  There is help from the company, help from the local groups, state and federal aid.  We will be there to go over each individual’s options.  This isn’t a bottomless system but we want to help in any way that we can.  No one should be cold this winter.”

On October 1st, the federally-funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) will begin accepting applications for the 2012-2013 heating season.

LIHEAP and the state’s Universal Service Fund (USF) are designed to help income-eligible families and individuals meet home heating and cooling costs.

The event takes place at the Saint Francis Community Center from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
