Maine to extend electrical cost assistance to low-income residents

Posted on

“Maine’s public utility regulators approved an extension Tuesday of an energy assistance program that is expected to help tens of thousands of low-income state residents while potential cuts to federal assistance loom. Members of the Maine Public Utilities Commission said the decision extends assistance to as many as 46,000 additional residents. The commission approved a one-time boost to its Low-Income Assistance Program and increased the eligibility threshold for Maine Department of Health and Human Services programs.”
