The Power to Care
No one should have to choose between food or medicine and electricity. But sadly, many of our elderly and disabled neighbors living on low or fixed incomes face these choices every day.
Through Entergy's The Power to Care program, local nonprofit agencies are able to provide emergency bill payment assistance to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. None of the donations are used for fundraising or administrative purposes, so 100 percent of your contribution will go to help those in need.
When you give, Entergy shareholders will match your gift, up to $500,000, doubling the impact of your contribution. Together, we have the power to provide immediate help and hope for those in need.
The LIHEAP Program
LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) is a program that provides money to help individuals with energy bills and other energy-related expenses. LIHEAP is funded through the federal government and works with the community action agencies to help customers pay for and keep electric service in their homes. For information on how to apply for assistance, call 1-800-421-0762 or visit the state Division of Community Services Web site. For a list of LIHEAP agencies, click here.

Have you received all your tax credits from the last 3 years?
If you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and you did not file for it in the previous three years, you may be eligible to receive anywhere from $390 to $4,300 for each year not filed. File an amended return and receive a refund now by first determining if you and your family are eligible for this credit. Then, complete the Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return Form 1040X, which you can download from the IRS Web site or pick up from an IRS office in your area.
For more information about claiming EITC for previous years, contact your local IRS office. To find the IRS office closest to you, access www.irs.gov/localcontacts or call 1-800-829-1040.
