Program/Service Notes:
The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) assists low income families (those at or below 150% of the poverty guidelines) with their heating and electric bills during the period from October through May 15th (sooner if the program depletes its funds). EAP is the point of entry for families to have their service re-connected. The Energy Assistance Program can also stop disconnections once families have been approved. Benefits are paid directly to the utility companies. Families receiving Energy Assistance are protected from disconnection of their utilities between December 1st and March 15th of the current heating season. Families may only apply once for Energy Assistance per heating season (October -May). The Energy Assistance Program also offers a small scale Summer Cool Program. Families that qualify for the Summer Cool Program receive $100 towards their electric bill. The Summer Cool Program is not intended to stop any disconnections and no disconnect protection is offered under the Summer Cool Program. The Summer Cool Program runs from June 1st to August 28th.
