Winter Termination Program prevents utility service discontinuation for eligible residential customers.

If you are having trouble paying your residential electric, sewer and water service bills this winter, the NJ Department of Community Affairs has a program to protect you from having these utilities turned off from November 15 through March 15 - Service cannot be disconnected during this period to those residential customers who demonstrate that they meet the eligibility criteria which is quite broad. 

 Who is Eligible? 

You qualify for protection during this period if you are being helped by one of the programs listed below:

• Federal Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
 • Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
 • Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

• Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) • General Assistance (GA) benefits
 • Universal Service Fund (USF)
 • Low-income Household Water Assistance Program

• Lifeline Credit Program


You are unable to pay your utility bills because of circumstances beyond your control such as unemployment, illness, medically related expenses, recent death of an immediate family member, and any other circumstances, which might cause financial hardship.
