Energy Assistance

Do you need help with the cost of heating your home?


October 1, 2014 marked the beginning of the 2014-2015 heating season and the start of the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program.   Wisconsin’s Home Energy Assistance Program helps households with incomes below 60 percent of the state median level pay for home energy costs.


Regular energy assistance is intended to help pay a portion of heating costs and is not intended to pay the total annual heating cost.


Crisis Assistance includes: retention of utility services, reconnections, oil deliveries and furnace repair or replacement.

(Note: furnace repair or replacement is offered when funds are available and is only available when home is owner occupied).

Referrals may be made for other heating related services.


The amount of heating assistance benefit varies based on a number of factors:

  • Household's size
  • Income level
  • Household energy costs 


Applicants must Bring:

  • Photo ID for the person who is completing the application.
  • Proof of all income sources of your entire household's gross income for the 3 months prior to the month of application. Seasonal employees will require the prior years entire tax package.
  • Social Security numbers for everyone in the household.
  • Current energy bill (gas/electric/oil).
  • If your heat is included with your rent you must provide a lease or statement from your landlord confirming your heat is included with rent.
