Regular Arrears Supplement HEAP Benefit

Struggling to catch up?

Regular Arrears Supplement HEAP Benefit provides a one-time benefit of up to $10,000 towards past due charges for electricity and/or natural gas for qualifying households.

New York State recently announced the “regular arrears supplement” last month to help low-income households that have fallen behind on their utility bills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Secured through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 and administered by the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, the regular arrears supplement is available to households who are eligible for the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) and behind on their heating utility bills, but that do not qualify for the utility assistance offered by New York's Emergency Rental Assistance Program.

As recently reported in Newsday, income eligible customers can apply this benefit to the outstanding balance on their PSEG Long Island electric bill while funding lasts. Customers can get started by calling customer service for more information, to attest to any financial hardships caused by the pandemic, and to develop individualized payment agreements.
