The Plus-1 Program
Created in 1982, Plus-1 is a partnership between MIFA and MLGW that provides utility assistance for individuals and families in financial crisis.
How Does Plus-1 Work?
MLGW customers fund the program by adding a dollar or more to their utility bills each month, or by making a one-time gift directly to MIFA. MLGW collects Plus-1 funds through customer bills and makes monthly disbursements to MIFA.
MIFA screens clients for eligibility. The average eligible household receives about $300 in assistance.
