NIPSCO’s Customer Assistance for Residential Energy (CARE) discount program provides bill reductions in addition to LIHEAP or customers falling within 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines. Once they are approved for LIHEAP, customers are automatically enrolled in the program and reductions range from 11 to 26 percent, depending on the same criteria used by the state in determining the level of assistance through LIHEAP. The monthly discount will be applied starting December 1, 2018 and will continue through May 31, 2019. If you apply for EAP after December, the discount will be applied on the first bill after program enrollment.
