2015-2016 Utility Payment Assistance Application


Households enrolled in PIPP should be aware that the program is now PIPP Plus. Under PIPP Plus, eligible customers pay six percent of their monthly income or $10 a month, whichever is greater, to both electric and gas utilities. Customers in all-electric homes pay 10 percent or $10, whichever is greater. These payments remain the same for 12 months when the customer's income is reverified.

To be eligible for PIPP Plus, customers must have a household income at or below 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For a family of four, that equals an annual income of $36,375.

To schedule an appointment, to re-certify PIPP Plus or for any services if you are not in disconnect status call Community Action Partnership Preble County at (937) 456-2800..
