Human Services Makes Changes to Energy Assistance Program

The Department of Human Services advises beneficiaries of the Energy Crisis Assistance Program (ECAP) of the following changes as of Wednesday, May 1.
• Gas assistance is limited to one cylinder for each household within a 12-month period. Additional gas cylinders will not be offered to customers who were already issued a cylinder for the year.
• The payment cap for electricity assistance is now $100 for each household bill. Human Services will pay up to $100 of the bill, and the customer is responsible for any amount greater than the cap.
