Like the EnergyShare program, Columbia Gas of Ohio’s HeatShare program is described by the company as a “last resort” program that provides a one-time $250 grant per calendar year. It is administered by the Salvation Army for Columbia Gas customers who have exhausted all other forms of aid such as HEAP.

  • Families qualify if they have an annual gross household income at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines (or $41,625 for a family of four).
  • Households experiencing financial hardships may also be eligible for the program, determined on a “case-by-case basis,” according to Columbia Gas.
  • Apply by contacting the Salvation Army office closest to where you live.
