National GridAARP New York and Public Utility Law Project (PULP) are collaborating to bring awareness to income eligible customers, particularly seniors, about National Grid’s Energy Affordability Program (EAP) to increase awareness of the relief program and other no-cost energy saving programs.

National Grid’s EAP program provides automatic bill discounts to customers enrolled annually in the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). In addition to the EAP monthly bill credit, customers can also benefit from other no-cost energy saving programs to improve the comfort of their home.

National Grid, AARP New York and PULP were available at the EAC Network Senior Center in Hempstead to connect eligible customers to the assistance and energy saving programs.

National Grid Consumer Advocates provided information and assisted seniors with enrollment. In addition, as part of National Grid’s Project C community commitment initiative, company volunteers helped celebrate the holidays and donated some gifts and decorations.

New York Senator Kevin Thomas participated to provide support to his constituents. "No New Yorker should have to choose between heating their home or putting food on the table,” said Senator Kevin Thomas. “National Grid’s Energy Assistance Program (EAP) has been instrumental in helping many Long Islanders, especially seniors living on fixed incomes, with the rising cost of home energy prices. I am grateful to National Grid and its community partners for raising awareness of this no-cost assistance program and I urge all eligible residents, seniors, and families to apply.”
