COVID-19 Residential Resources
UGI is committed to making things easier for our customers during these challenging times.
To help you worry less, we’ve compiled the following list of resources and information regarding assistance programs and payment options.
Budget Billing Program
If your gas or electric usage varies widely from month to month or seasonally, consider our Budget Billing program, which allows you to spread your UGI costs evenly throughout the year.
Emergency Rental Assistance Program
The United States Treasury has recently introduced a program to assist renters that are struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Benefits include assistance with past due utility accounts (electric, natural gas), water bills and rent. Utility bills incurred from March 2020 through present will be considered. Learn more.
Customer Assistance Programs to Help with Your Bill
As always, UGI offers many programs to assist customers in managing their energy costs and saving money. UGI is committed to helping customers who make a sincere effort to pay their bills. Our representatives can assist you by providing the information on a variety of energy assistance programs, making referrals to local agencies, applying for a grant from various fuel funds or establishing payment arrangements or an extension.
Existing assistance programs include:
Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) offers FREE energy assistance grants for income-qualified customers. You do not have to have an unpaid bill to receive these grants.
Program extended until April 30, 2021.
Customer Assistance Program (CAP) offers a personalized monthly payment based on income, average bill, and past due debt forgiveness with on-time monthly payments. The difference between the CAP payment and actual usage bill may also be forgiven.
Operation Share Energy Fund is a community-based program that is funded by voluntary donations from UGI employees, UGI customers and concerned citizens. This fund provides energy assistance grants to qualified customers who experience difficultly paying their heating bills.
