Connecticut Matching Payment Program

Bill payment assistance for qualified Connecticut customers with electric or gas heating service.

Watch this short video for an overview of the Matching Payment Program

How it Works

To participate, you must be approved for and receive energy assistance from the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP).

For every dollar you pay toward your bill, we will credit a dollar to your past-due amount down to a zero balance. So, you pay a portion, CEAP pays a portion, and Eversource pays a portion.

Eligibility requirements

  • You must be a current Eversource residential customer and heat your home with electricity or natural gas
  • Your household income must be at or below 60 percent of the estimated state median income
  • You must have CEAP energy assistance funds applied directly to your Eversource account
  • You must continue to pay your payment arrangement amount on time each month
