Apply for Low Income Ratepayer Assistance (LIRA) Program


- -

You can find your Southwest Gas account number near the top of your bill, under your service address.


LIRA Rate Application

You may qualify for reduced energy rates through the Arizona Low Income Ratepayer Assistance (LIRA) Program. This program can help you save money by providing a yearly 30% reduction in the monthly basic service charge and a “per therm” rate discount. The “per therm” discount will be applied to the first 150 therms of natural gas used each month from November 1 through April 30. This discount is for your primary residence only, and the Southwest Gas bill must be in your name, or an individual master-meter tenant of a mobile home park, housing project, or apartment complex where your landlord bills you directly for your gas usage.

LIRA Program rate discounts are determined by your total gross household income and number of people living in your residence.

Review the income guidelines and if you think you may qualify, complete this application online if you are a direct Southwest Gas customer. If you are a master-meter tenant, please print the LIRA Application Master-Meter Tenant form listed at the bottom of the screen and mail it in to begin receiving your discount.
