Heating Assistance

WHEAP assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season (October1 - May 15). The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence.  The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household's size, income, and energy costs.  The energy assistance benefit is paid directly to the household energy supplier.

Electric Assistance

WHEAP electric (non-heating) assistance is a one-time benefit payment during the heating season (October 1 - May 15).  The funding pays a portion of the household's electrical (non-heating) costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of the non-heating costs.

The amount of the non-heating assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household's size, income, and non-heating costs.  The non-heating assistance benefit is paid directly to the household energy supplier.

Heating or Electric Crisis Assistance

Heating assistance may be available if you have no heat or at or below 10% and do not have the money to purchase more.

Electric Crisis assistance may be available if you have received a disconnect notice from your energy supplier.

Crisis assistance funding is based on availability.

Furnace Assistance 

WHEAP emergency heating system assistance can provide services to eligible home owners if the furnace or boiler stops operating during the heating season. Heating system assistance includes payment for repairs, or in some situations your residence may qualify for a total replacement of a non-operating furnace or boiler. Call immediately if you are experiencing a no heat situation.
