Gas Assistance Program

The Gas Assistance Program can help income eligible residential heating customers with their natural gas bills. Income eligible heating customers of National Grid-Gas and Unitil-Gas would receive a discount of 60% of the delivery portion of their bill. The discount does not apply, however, to the cost of gas portion of the bill.

The discount provided through this program helps make bills more affordable and helps customers avoid the risk of having their gas service shut off for non-payment. To be eligible for the program, customers must be residential heating customers of either National Grid-Gas or Unitil-Gas and receive, or be qualified to receive, benefits from one of the following programs:

  • Fuel Assistance Program
  • Electric Assistance Program
  • Supplemental Security Income Program
  • Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC)
  • Commodity Surplus Foods Program (for women, infants and children)
  • Elderly Commodity Surplus Foods Program
  • Temporary Aid to Needy Families Program (TANF)
  • Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)
  • Head Start Program
  • Aid to Permanently and Totally Disabled (APTD)
  • Aid to the Needy Blind
  • Old Age Assistance
  • Food Stamps

For more information, contact your gas company directly at 1-800-262-4111 for National Grid-Gas customers and 1-800-552-3043 for customers of Unitil-Gas.
