Gas Assistance Fund | SoCal Gas


Need Help Paying Your Gas Bill?

If you're having difficulty paying your natural gas bill, the Gas Assistance Fund (GAF) may be able to provide you, or someone you know, with a one-time grant for the amount of the gas bill, not to exceed $400.00. If the eligible applicant is age 55+ or has an older adult (55+) living in the household, an additional $100 is available for a maximum grant of up to $500. Additionally, those facing certain financial hardships may be eligible for extra grant funding. Make an appointment with your local agency to see what your household may qualify for.

The Gas Assistance Fund is a joint effort of SoCalGas® and United Way of Greater Los Angeles. United Way works with non-profit organizations throughout our service territory to manage the program.

How to Qualify

To qualify for GAF, you must meet the following requirements:

  • The natural gas bill must be in the name of the applicant requesting assistance.
  • The bill address must be the applicant’s primary residence.
  • The applicant must not apply for more than the maximum GAF allowance for the current program year.
  • The applicant must meet the income guidelines listed below:

For each additional person in your household, add $14,160

These income guidelines are effective July 1, 2022 thru May 31, 2023.

Program interest is leading to higher call volumes

SoCalGas can’t accept or process applications for GAF. The non-profit agencies are not affiliated with SoCalGas, and have their own specific days and hours of availability to accept applications and answer questions. Please refer to the Agency List for more information.
