Now Taking Applications for  the Elderly Electric Assistance Program (EHEAP)

**This is a program for households in which there is at least one person age 60 or older.**  Households not meeting this criteria should seek other means of assistance by going through their local Resource Center.

Pasco County Human Services cannot assist with an eligible electric bill through this program until a past due, disconnect, or collection notice has been issued (including a current bill for which the due date has expired).

Submit the Application for Elderly Electric Assistance to apply for help with past due electric bills, electric deposit, and/or restoration of disconnected electric service.
