PSE&G wants customers to know that a new grant is available to help moderate-income customers who are behind with their PSE&G bill.
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) provided funding this year to the Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) for the new grant known as Payment Assistance Gas and Electric (PAGE). The grant is intended for low- to moderate-income New Jersey residents who are struggling to pay their electric and natural gas bills.
“We know there are families who are falling behind with their PSE&G bill, yet don’t qualify for low-income assistance programs,” said Joseph A. Forline, PSE&G’s vice president for customer solutions. “This new program can provide them with up to $1,400 in much-needed assistance during this brutally cold winter.”
To be eligible for a PAGE grant, customers must:
• Have a PSE&G bill that is currently past due.
• Have made at least two payments of $25 or more in the last six months. At least one of those payments was made in the past 30 days, or a $100 good faith payment was made in the last 90 days.
• Have not received assistance from Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) in the current heating season, or have received a Universal Service Fund (USF) benefit within the past six months.

Most program applications can be downloaded from the website and are available at the PSE&G’s 16 walk-in Customer Service Centers listed on your bill. Customers can also apply online for the PAGE Grant, TRUE Grant and NJ SHARES.
