The Good Neighbor Energy Fund is a cooperative effort between Massachusetts energy companies and The Salvation Army of Massachusetts that provides energy assistance to those in temporary crisis. Although there are eligibility guidelines based on income and household size, the program is more flexible than the federal and state energy assistance funds, which have strict income guidelines that disqualify many people who, because of unexpected circumstances, experience a temporary need for assistance.
To qualify for assistance, an applicant’s gross household income must fall between 60 and 80 percent of the state’s median income levels. Those who qualify may receive up to $300 per household per heating season.
