Utility Help is Available

" "

New Jersey's utility shutoff moratorium ended on March 15th.

If you owe money on your utilities, here are three ways to get help:

  • Call your utility company and ask about payment plans
  • Apply for assistance using the DCAid Service Portal
  • Dial 2-1-1 for local services 

You can apply for help now from multiple financial assistance programs using the DCAid Service Portal from New Jersey's Department of Community Affairs. With expanded income eligibility for some programs, you may be eligible for assistance even if you thought you were not. 

To arrange a payment plan, contact your utility company as soon as possible to enroll in a Deferred Payment Agreement to lower your monthly payment and keep your service on.
