Energy Assistance

From the Office of Senator Jo Comerford:

Dear Friends,

With gas and electric rates climbing to record high prices this winter, Attorney General Maura Healey announced a campaign to educate residents about assistance available to help pay their monthly energy bills this winter. As part of the education awareness campaign, the AG’s Office is working with Project Bread and the state’s regional food banks – The Greater Boston Food Bank, the Worcester County Food Bank, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts and the Merrimack Valley Food Bank – and their partner pantries to educate customers on the new winter rates and available energy assistance programs. The campaign includes the distribution of thousands of multilingual flyersand an updated website with resources on how to save on monthly bills. And we are offering a webinar for community members and services providers on Energy Delivery & Assistance: A Consumer Warning. Join us!
