Now in its 39th year, the Massachusetts Good Neighbor Energy Fund has provided energy assistance to hundreds-of-thousands of residents in temporary crisis who are struggling to pay their energy bills and do not qualify for federal or state energy funds.

"This Fund really helps the people who might otherwise not be served, mainly the underemployed of Massachusetts," says Marie McCabe, 2023-2024 GNEF Chairperson. "Without assistance from the GNEF, many households wouldn't be able to make a monthly utility payment." To determine if your household is income eligible, please go to Need Energy Assistance?.

A cooperative effort between sponsoring Massachusetts energy companies and caring neighbors throughout the Commonwealth, the Good Neighbor Energy Fund has raised over $24.5 million and assisted more than 94,850 households with a month's energy expense since its inception in 1985.
