The Power to Care
No one should have to choose between food or medicine and electricity. But sadly, many of our elderly and disabled neighbors living on low or fixed incomes face these choices every day.
Through Entergy's The Power to Care program, local nonprofit agencies are able to provide emergency bill payment assistance to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. None of the donations are used for fundraising or administrative purposes, so 100 percent of your contribution will go to help those in need.
When you give, Entergy shareholders will match your gift, up to $500,000, doubling the impact of your contribution. Together, we have the power to provide immediate help and hope for those in need.
Just click here to donate. It’s a small thing you can do to make a big difference in someone’s life. To find a local community action agency where you can apply for help, click here.
Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program assists low-income households, particularly those with the lowest incomes and disproportionately highest energy costs to meet their home energy costs by making payments directly to energy suppliers.
Both homeowner and renter households are eligible to receive LIHEAP assistance. The household's annual income must be at or below 150% of federal poverty level. Energy costs must also be documented.
