Energy Assistance

If you believe you qualify for this program we encourage you to establish your income eligibility through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP).

                         Types of assistance available through WHEAP

Heating Assistance
WHEAP assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1 to May 15). The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence.

Electric Assistance
This non-heating assistance is a one-time benefit payment during the heating season.

Crisis Assistance
A household may be eligible for crisis assistance if you have no heat, have received a disconnect notice from the heating vendor, or are nearly out of fuel and do not have the money to purchase more.

There is also non-emergency or proactive crisis services that include providing information on how to reduce fuel costs, counseling on budgeting and money management, providing payments to a fuel supplier and co-pay agreements.

Furnace Assistance
WHEAP emergency heating system assistance can provide services to eligible home owners if the furnace or boiler stops operating during the heating season. Heating system assistance includes payment for repairs, or in some situations your residence may qualify for a total replacement of a non-operating furnace or boiler. Call the local energy assistance office immediately if you are experiencing a no-heat situation at 1-715-258-6820.
