I know the last thing you're probably thinking of is winter, but...The application period for the 2023-2024 winter season of the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is open. CEAP provides vulnerable state homeowners and renters with crucial support for the associated costs of heating their homes.
If you are interested, there are several ways to apply:
Additional information on the application process can be obtained by visiting ct.gov/heatinghelp or calling 2-1-1.
Applications for the 2023-2024 winter season must be received byMay 31, 2024.
Basic benefits toward heating bills range from $180 to $530 depending on income, size of household, and need. Benefits are available for households with incomes up to 60% of the state median income, which equates to roughly $79,910 for a family of four. These benefits are usually paid directly to the utility company or fuel supplier. Households that heat with deliverable fuels like oil or propane may be eligible for multiple free tank refills.
I want to spread the word that this resource is available to our most vulnerable community members.
