NECAC also administers privately funded emergency energy programs such as Dollar More, Dollar Help, Round-Up, Liberty Community Funds, United Way, FEMA, and others. Funds are limited and certain restrictions apply.

Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP)

Helps pay your energy bill when you have a termination or disconnect notice indicating a specific disconnect date, a final billing statement advising the account has been terminated, a propane-fuel oil tank is filled at less than 20% capacity, the customer is a cash on delivery (COD) customer, pre-paid electric customer indicates their pre-paid usage is about to run out, or when an applicant indicates another fuel source is about to fun out (Wood, corn pellets, kerosene). The amount of help you receive is based on the amount of bill with the energy provider.
