Since 1983, Dollar Energy Fund has worked to help limited-income households maintain or restore basic gas, water and electric service. Our holistic approach also connects those in need with resources beyond utility assistance, which helps to lead our clients onto a path of self-sufficiency.
Dollar Energy Fund Is Here For You
Like many of those who receive a grant from our program, you may be experiencing a temporary financial hardship, such as a job loss, medical emergency, or other circumstance beyond your control. A grant from Dollar Energy Fund can help keep you from enduring further financial hardship or having to choose between paying your monthly utility bills and purchasing food, medicine or other necessities.
Thank you very much for helping me get my gas turned back on. I am a single mother of four and, because of Dollar Energy Fund, we can have heat this winter. Thank you and God Bless!” – Carla, Pittsburgh, PA
There are a variety of programs available to assist those who are having difficulty affording safe utility service.
