NIPSCO Hardship Program

NIPSCO provides energy assistance funds for natural gas customers who fall between 151-200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level and have received a Disconnect Notice. Eligible households can receive up to $400 in gas bill assistance starting December 1, 2018 and will continue through May 31, 2019. 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.​
  • Funding is limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.​
