Lifeline Program

This utility assistance program is designed to help eligible low-income senior citizens and people with disabilities.


This program offers $225 to persons who meet the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) eligibility requirements or who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This includes utility customers as well as tenants whose utility bills are included in their rent. Lifeline benefits are provided only for electric and natural gas consumers.
