Summer Crisis Program
The Summer Crisis Program provides assistance to eligible households once per season. The program operates from July 1 to August 31 annually.
Households must be living at or below 175% of the Federal Poverty Line AND
- Have a member age 60 or older OR
- Have a member with a documented medical condition worsened by extreme heat
Customers of regulated utilities must sign up for PIPP Plus and the crisis program will make their first PIPP payment. Customers already on PIPP (or who have defaulted on PIPP) cannot receive bill payment assistance but may be eligible for an air conditioner or electric fan if available.
