State of New Hampshire Emergency
Energy Assistance Programs
State of NH Emergency Energy Assistance
$35M in funding for emergency energy assistance for New Hampshire residents is now available to help with high energy prices this fall and winter.
New Hampshire residents are seeing higher energy bills due to the current high energy prices. Energy markets worldwide are volatile, and the higher prices we are seeing are the result of an energy supply crunch brought about by increased energy usage as the economy recovers from the COVID pandemic, uncertainties in supply stemming from the ongoing war in Ukraine, and growing inflation.
Although these factors are out of our control, the State of New Hampshire, through the local Community Action Agencies, is providing emergency energy assistance to qualifying households.
Who Is Eligible?
Households with incomes between 60% and 75% of the state median income may qualify for:
A one-time credit of $450 for heating assistance.
A one-time credit of $200 on electric bills.
