One-time Assistance

show all

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides home energy assistance to help eligible low-income households meet their home heating and/or cooling needs.

Your Community Action Agency in your county may be able to offer you one or more of the following types of assistance:

  • Utility bill payment assistance
  • Energy crisis assistance
  • Weatherization and energy-related home repairs

Project Share provides assistance to low-income, disabled and elderly customers for their electric and natural gas service. SCE&G customers, employees and retirees generously fund the program. The South Carolina’s Department of Administration’s Office of Economic Opportunity, through community action agencies, administers the program. To apply for assistance, contact your local community action agency.

The program is available year-round and provides support for customers with immediate energy assistance needs. Eligible SCE&G customers may receive one-time assistance per household per year with an annual cap of $500 per household. For more information, please contact Salvation Army Energy Assistance.
