On November 21, 2023, the Department of Health and Human Services notified 67,000 households that they qualify for the Low-Income Assistance Program (LIAP), which is administered by the Public Utilities Commission. The program will provide up to $22.5 million in credits on the electric bills issued to qualifying customers who provide a copy of the LIAP letter to their utility companies. Residents who do not receive a letter and need assistance are urged to complete the online form found here. More information on how Mainers can stay warm this winter is found in the Governor’s Energy Office’s 2023 Winter Heating Guide.
