Member Assistance Program

Lane Electric provides the opportunity for any member who wishes to contribute to the Member Assistance Program (MAP), to designate an amount on their electric bill that they would like donated to assist less fortunate members who are unable to pay their electric bills during the winter months. Your donation to the MAP Program is truly appreciated by all of those it helps.

You can help

Thanks to the caring spirit of several hundred Lane Electric members, almost $10,000 is raised annually for the Member Assistance Program (MAP). Every dollar goes to provide emergency aid to families that are experiencing a financial crisis by paying part of their electricity costs.

Make this winter more comfortable for a less fortunate family, fixed-income senior, or disabled person by making a voluntary contribution to MAP. You may make either a single (one-time) contribution, or pledge an amount you want to give each month. Your pledge will be added to your bill, and your decision to pay the pledge will be completely voluntary.

THE GOAL OF MAP is to offer assistance to members that don’t qualify for other types of relief because of deep cuts in government assistance programs. A growing number of people can’t get help due to limited funding. It is these families who “fall between the cracks” that MAP is intended to help.

How to Participate

IT’S EASY to help! Simply fill out a MAP Pledge Form (PDF), or call the office and we will complete one for you. Lane Electric pays all administrative costs for the program.
