Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel joined Consumers Energy to kick off a public campaign to make sure Michigan residents know about – and access – tens of millions in federal, state and local dollars to help pay winter heating bills.
People who are struggling with energy bills should call 2-1-1, a free service that connects people with nonprofit agencies in communities across the state, or visit mi211.org.
Other ways to get help:
- Apply for State Emergency Relief at
- Contact Consumers Energy
at 800-477-5050 to make
- Apply for Home Heating Credit via
Michigan Department of Treasury
“No one likes to ask for help,” said Nessel, “but millions of dollars are available to help people pay their bills. Calling 2-1-1 for help will get that money to people in need.”
