Winter Warmth
Need Help with your Natural Gas Bill?

Meeting all your financial commitments can sometimes mean that you find yourself a little short when the time comes to pay your natural gas bill.  There is assistance available. If you've recently had difficulty paying, or are concerned about making your next payment, the Winter Warmth program may be able to help. Winter Warmth is designed for low-income families and individuals living at, or below, the poverty line who have exhausted all other sources of financial support. Approved households may receive one grant (up to $500 maximum) per calendar year.

When an application is approved, the funds will be credited directly to your Union Gas bill, giving you peace of mind and helping you get your natural gas bill back under control.
