NIPSCO Hardship Program


NIPSCO provides energy assistance funds for those customers who fall between 151-200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level and have received a Disconnect Notice. Eligible households can receive up to $200 in gas bill assistance between December 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014. Hardship funds are available through many of the same local Community Action Agencies where LIHEAP funds are distributed.

Please note, Disconnect Notice must be presented with application.

Please note, funding is limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
