Plus-1 by the Numbers

Program Overview

Plus-1 was created in 1982 and is a partnership between MIFA and MLGW that provides one time utility assistance for individuals and families in financial crisis, such as job loss or medical emergency. MLGW collects Plus-1 funds, and MIFA screens clients for eligibility and priority. MLGW customers fund the program through one time donations or by adding a dollar or  more to their utility bills each month.
