South Jersey Gas Energy Assistance

South Jersey Gas’s outreach team is diligently working with community partners like Job Corps regarding energy assistance for customers.

Being that utility companies are not able to discontinue services on outstanding accounts; customers are not enrolling/re enrolling in assistance plans and are missing out on their emergency assistance benefits this year. Once disconnections are reinstated most customer accounts are going to be in the high thousands if they haven’t been making payments on account during the pandemic.

It is currently Emergency Assistance season which means all enrolled customers can obtain up to $600 off balances but the season ends on July 31st with no extensions. Please see the fact sheet.

If you have someone in need of assistance information or guidance with their account, please ask them to email Mrs. Christine Steel at directly, she has been copied on this email.  SJ Gas processing agencies are still processing applications.   Please share this with as many people as you can, time is running out!   Because Job Corps cares about the community, we share.
