Forgiveness Matching Payment Program
Our Forgiveness Matching Payment Program may help you manage your gas bill. With this program, we will match the payments you make to your outstanding, past-due gas utility bill when you make your required payments.
Here is what you need to do to be eligible1 for and participate in the Forgiveness Matching Payment Program.
Phase 1 - Enrolling is easy
- Call 2-1-1 or visit 211ct.org to find your local Community Action Agency.
- Apply for, qualify and receive energy assistance.
- Enroll in our Matching Payment Program. Assistance begins on November 1.
- Make your required monthly budgeted utility payment(s) on time each month until May 1.
You will receive a matching payment in May equal to the amount you have paid to your account between November 1 - May 1, down to a zero balance.
Phase 2 - Continue making payments
- Continue making required monthly budgeted utility payment(s) on time each month.
- If you’ve made all your monthly payments on time by October 31, you are eligible for a second matching payment in November.
Complete Phase 2 and receive a second matching payment in November that will equal the amount you have paid to your account during Phase 2 of the program period (May 2 through October 31), down to a zero balance.
Be sure to make your budgeted payments on time throughout the year to receive the Forgiveness Matching Payment Program benefits.
