CAP offers a variety of utility assistance programs designed to assist families who have low incomes with utility and heating fuel bills.
Eligible families can receive benefits paid toward their heating bill, including natural gas, electricity, wood, propane and oil costs. Benefit amounts are determined by total household income, size and historical energy usage and do not require a disconnection or situation where heating fuel is nearly exhausted in order to be received.
Households who have already received energy assistance but who are facing an energy emergency, such as service disconnection or heating fuel being nearly exhausted may also be able to receive additional assistance depending on funding availability and household eligibility. If CAP is unable to help, referrals to other organizations might also be an option.
Eligible families can receive benefits paid toward their water and sewer bills. Benefits are determined by total household income, size, and amount owed on the water and sewer bills.
Contact your local CAP office to determine your eligibility for assistance and to apply.
