The PIPP program is available to customers who are serviced by a regulated utility (American Electric Power and Columbia Gas). To qualify for enrollment a customer must be at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines.  Payments are based on gross monthly income.   Total electric households pay a monthly percentage of 10%.  A household that heats with both gas and electric or bulk fuel pays 6% per utility.  This program is available year-round.
