Winter Termination Program
The NJ Department of Community Affairs has implemented a Winter Termination Program to prevent discontinuation for eligible residential customers receiving residential electric, sewer and water service from a local authority, municipal authority, or rural electric cooperative from November 15th through March 15th. All customers in arrears should visit: DCAid or NJ211 for possible assistance. For further details, please review: Winter Termination Program
New Jersey's utility shutoff moratorium ended on March 15th, but some residential customers with overdue utility bills can receive an extension to June 15th.
A new law requires local authorities, municipal or public utilities, and rural electric cooperatives to continue providing electric, gas, sewer, or water service to residential customers who have submitted an application for utility assistance prior to June 15th, 2022 but have not yet received a decision on their application.
To receive the extension, you need to apply for assistance. One easy way to apply is by visiting the DCAid Service Portal hosted by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
