2010 Low Income Initiative Progress Report

The 2010 Low-Income Customer Assistance Progress Report* is dedicated to the thousands of generous and caring individuals who support The Power to Care program. In this report you will hear from some of the real people whose lives you have touched. Each of their stories is unique, but one thing they all share in common is when they were in need of a helping hand, you extended yours. Thank you.

You will also read about Entergy's Low-Income Champions and partner agencies whose collective efforts are the heart and soul of Entergy's Low-Income Customer Assistance Initiative which was launched in 1999 to help impoverished individuals and families lead better quality lives through asset-building programs, energy efficiency and weatherization projects, community grants and investments and bill payment assistance.

Entergy's employees and retirees have volunteered countless hours to building and weatherizing homes; distributing fans, air conditioners and blankets; counseling working-poor families on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); meeting with community service organizations to pursue programs benefiting low-income citizens; and lobbying for increased federal funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).

Throughout this report, you'll see how Entergy has been part of a powerful coalition of caring during 2009. You'll also find ways you can continue to make a crucial difference in the lives of low-income relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers through times of financial emergency.
