shutterstock_155143007Did you know that during the 2014-2015 winter season more than 1.4 million low-income households throughout New York State received Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) benefits? Did you know that each year hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers lose vital utility services when they are terminated for bill collection purposes?

New York’s Utility Project is working on behalf of these consumers and the more than 1.5 million low-income households across New York State to enforce their consumer rights, make service more affordable, obtain assistance to pay or reduce bills, and keep the lights on safely.

We are a small organization with a big mission and we need your help.

You can help keep the lights on, houses warmed and utilities accessible for the more than a million low-income families in New York State. As we diligently work to educate consumers, advocate for affordable, reliable utility service and provide legal representation for low-income utility consumers, you can join us in our important work.
