Project Care Waiving Referral Requirements for May 2020 by NHEC | May 5, 2020 | NHEC Foundation, Uncategorized In response to the economic upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, NHEC has made it easier for members in need to access help through its Project Care assistance program. For the month of May 2020, the Project Care Board of Directors has waived the requirement that members obtain a referral from a social service agency to apply for financial assistance. If you have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply for assistance to pay your electric bill through Project Care, even if you have never needed financial assistance before. See further information in the Project Care application here. Project Care is a tax-exempt charitable organization that was formed in 1990 to assist NHEC members in need with their electric bills. Since that time, we have helped thousands of members pay their electric bills. Members eligible to receive Project Care funds will receive a credit applied to their NHEC bill. To apply, please call our Member Solutions department at 1-800-698-2007 or fill out the application here.
