Keeping the Lights On

Utility Bill Advocacy services are for low-income clients with overdue utility bills, or who cannot afford their monthly bills and need assistance communicating with utility companies. Staff at participating neighborhood site's facilitate communications between the client and the company to negotiate debt forgiveness, ensure that a fair payment plan is designed, and that clients are able to make the arranged payments.

Additionally, ABCD's central Energy Department offers information on the Eversource Arrearage Forgiveness Assistance Program for qualified customers. This program is designed to assist customers with past due electric and/or gas Eversource bills. Eversource will forgive past due balances over a period of time if the customer pays the agreed monthly budgeted bill on time.
