As we continue to pursue more long-term solutions to reduce rising costs of energy, I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming outreach event to help residents access critical financial assistance from United Illuminating (UI) and Southern Connecticut Gas (SCG), through the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), the Community Renewal Team (CRT) and Operation Fuel.
Over the past two years, Connecticut, like many states across our country, has experienced an uptick in juvenile motor vehicle thefts and other criminal activity. House Democrats heard your calls for swift action and responded by leading bipartisan discussions to develop smart juvenile justice reforms. I'm pleased to share that bipartisan legislation addressing the pandemic-driven uptick in juvenile crime has been signed into law.
The application period for the 2022-2023 winter season of the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is now open! This program provides crucial support to vulnerable Connecticut homeowners and renters with the costs of heating their homes.
