Energy Assistance

HELP of Southern Nevada is collaborating with the state of Nevada to help clients apply for energy assistance. This is a program that can pay part of the power bill for those that are low income and also are having financial barriers for a variety of reasons. The program can pay for arrearages, reconnections, previous addresses bills and also current. This program is done and then hand delivered to the state. Once this process is complete the state then does the qualifying for these clients. Currently, this process takes 30-45 days. The following items are needed in order to qualify:

  • You must be low income.
  • You must provide proof of residence.
  • You must provide copies of IDís and Social Security cards for all members of the household.

This is an effort to assist clients. HELP of Southern Nevada plays no other role and has no part in the final decision for assistance. Clients call the phone number provided on the application form.
