Eligiblity Requirements

Eligibility Guidelines:

  • Total household income is at or below 150% of the federal poverty (see income chart)
  • The household is "vulnerable," i.e. they are responsible (either directly or indirectly) for paying their home energy costs. Indirectly means that a household pays rent and a landlord, trailer park, etc., uses part of that rent to help cover the cost of utilities.
  • The household has at least one person who is a U.S. citizen or a qualified alien with acceptable United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) documents.

Target groups for the program:

  • families with children five and under;
  • disabled residents
  • seniors age 60 and older

Because this program provides assistance only one time each season, it is important for families and individuals to do all they can to keep their utility bills current and to conserve energy.
