Hopelink may be able to provide up to $1,000 of your home heating costs each year. If you qualify for the program, you can receive assistance even if you are not behind on your bill and/or have not received a shut-off notice.

The goal of Hopelink’s energy program is to keep members of our community safe and warm, and to contribute to a stable home environment.

We believe a household should never have to choose between heat and electricity or other necessities, such as food, health care, or shelter. Energy assistance funds enable our community members to devote their resources to other crucial expenses. Funding is currently plentiful and we encourage those who live in our service area to schedule an appointment.

Eligible households with the highest heat costs receive the greatest assistance.

People who have been disconnected or have less than a 10-day supply of oil, wood or propane, should call their nearest center to schedule an emergency appointment.
