A note from Ann Lewis Our Municipal Agent...
There is a nip in the air....wondering about your heating costs for the winter???
Winter Heating Assistance Program
The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is now open at community action agency sites around the state. To schedule an appointment, please call your local community action agency at the phone number provided below. You can also contact 2-1-1 Infoline or the DSS Office of Community Services at 1-800-842-1132 for contact inforamtion or intake sites closest to where you reside.
The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program is designed to help offset the winter heating costs of Connecticut's lower income households, specifically those households whose incomes fall at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines as well as households with elderly, disabled and/or childeren under the age of six, with incomes between 150 percent and 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.
Hoseholds with icomes below 60 percent of the state median income who are not eligible to receive assistance under CEAP may be eligible to receive assistance under the Contingency Heating Assistance program.
On behalf of eligible households, the winter heating assistance pays for such heating sources as oil, natural gas, electricity, propane, kerosene, coal, wood and wood pellets.
Homeowners and renters may apply.
Households eligible for the winter heating program may also be eligible to receive weatherization assistance. This can help conserve energy and lower heating bills.
The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program and Contingency Heating assistance Program are administered by the Department of Social Services, and coordinated by regional Community Action Agencies, in cooperation with municipal and other non-profit human service agencies.
