What is PIPP Plus?

Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) Plus is a special payment plan that requires eligible customers to pay a portion of their household income each month to maintain utility services. Under PIPP Plus, if you heat with gas, you pay 6% of your monthly household income each month to maintain utility services.Under PIPP Plus, if you heat with gas, you pay 6% of your monthly household income to your gas company and 6% to your electric company. If you heat with electricity, you pay 10% of your monthly household income. Our HEAP staff or utility company will inform you of your PIPP Plus installment.

LCCAA is also accepting applications for the Winter Crisis Program. The program provides assistance once per heating session to eligible households that are disconnected, threatened with disconnection, or have less than a 10-day supply or less than 25 percent supply of bulk fuel in their tank.   Call 1-855-806-9620 to hear more information or to schedule an appointment.
