Utility Moratorium remains in effect until March 15th

INDIANA – The Utility Moratorium went into effect on December 1, 2021, and will remain in place through March 15, 2022. The moratorium means that utility companies cannot disconnect low-income households based on lack of payment during the cold winter months.

Hoosiers who have applied for the Low-Income Household Energy and Water Assistance Programs will be protected by the moratorium by their participation in the LIHEAP/LIHWAP programs.  This allows the Local Service Provider time to determine eligibility. 

The Low-Income Household Energy and Water Assistance Programs are open and accepting applications. This one-time benefit can assist Hoosiers with the high cost of utilities during the winter months.
