WAUKEGAN – With winter drawing closer, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas are making customers aware of financial assistance available to people having a tough time keeping up with their heating bills.

For Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas customers, bill payment assistance is available through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and the Share the Warmth program. To see if they are eligible to apply, Peoples Gas customers can call the Community Economic Development Association at 800-571-2332 or go to cedarorg.net.
