ENERGY & UTILITY ASSISTANCE

The CT Energy Assistance Program provides financial assistance to eligible residents responsible for heating their homes. The purpose of this program is to supplement the
cost of heat, not to meet the entire need of the heating season. The assistance is paid directly to the utility provider.

Many towns offer application assistance right in their community, so you may first contact your Municipal Agent to see if this service is available to you. You may also make an appointment to apply for assistance at the Community Action Agency nearest you. To find a CAA in your area or read more about the program, refer to the links

Operation Fuel raises funds for energy assistance through individuals, corporations, and foundations. These funds are distributed as emergency energy assistance grants to qualified applicants who have applied at one of their 100 partner agencies.

Operation Fuel provides a one-time grant of up to $500 to assist families with their energy bills. In order to apply for an Operation Fuel utility or deliverable fuel grant,
you must submit an application through one of their partner agencies (local fuel banks).

To find the participating Fuel Bank in your town and How to Apply/How it Works go to Operation Fuel.
