Dear Secaucus Residents:
The rising cost to heat at home can make it difficult for low-income earners to pay their gas bill during the winter months. If the hot water for the home is heated through natural gas, paying the bill can be difficult any time of the year. New Jersey has programs to help individuals and families avoid having their heat turned off at any time during the year.
