South Shore Community Action Council's Home Energy Assistance Program

Energy costs will more than likely increase this winter.  If you need financial assistance, consider applying.  Applications open November 1st.


The Home Energy Assistance Program (commonly known as Fuel Assistance) runs from November 1st through April 30th.


The Home Energy Assistance Program assists with paying bills for your primary heating source for your home. Unfortunately, they cannot pay all of your home heating bills. Eligibility is determined by the gross income of all family members, as well as family size and energy burden.
