Atlanta – October 27, 2022 – As cooler temperatures move in, thermostats go up to keep homes warm and comfortable resulting in higher heating costs due to increased natural gas usage. To help offset winter heating costs, Atlanta Gas Light offers bill payment assistance resources to eligible customers whose household budgets may not be able to keep up with increased heating demands.
Enrollment for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) opens November 1 for eligible seniors and disabled customers. General enrollment begins December 1. The federal and state-funded grant program provides income-eligible households with monetary relief for their energy bills. Eligibility is based on several factors, including household size and income up to 60% of the state median income, which for a family of four equates to a gross monthly income of $4,243 or less.
To apply for LIHEAP, natural gas customers in Georgia can call 404-657-3427 or visit the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services website for a list of other resources.
Atlanta Gas Light is proud to partner with the following community agencies to assist customers in the communities it serves with bill payments and heating appliance repairs/replacements.
These energy-saving tips can help customers become more energy efficient to save on energy costs during the winter heating season.
