Utility Bill Help Still Available for NJ Residents until June 15th
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.
Apply is by visiting the DCAid Service Portal hosted by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
