Project Stay Connected helps low-income people to maintain heating, electricity, gas, and phone services. NCLC provides training and case advice for front-line social service workers and advocates in Massachusetts.
We also advocate for more consumer-friendly rules and practices regarding shut-offs of utility services, promote discount rates and reasonable payment plans, and seek adequate funding for the fuel assistance and weatherization programs.
Project Stay Connected is made possible through the generous support of The Boston Foundation, and an anonymous funder.
