Wisconsin’s Home Energy Assistance Program
helps pay for home energy costs through several programs.
The Heating Assistance program is a one-time benefit for each heating season (October 1 through May 15).
This benefit is
intended to help pay a portion of home heating costs. It is not intended
to cover the entire annual cost of heating a home.
The amount of the heating assistance benefit depends on the
size of the household, the household income, and the cost of heating the
The Public Benefits program assists with non-heating
electric costs. Persons may be eligible to receive benefits for both
heating and non-heating costs.
The Weatherization program can help to reduce home energy
costs and thus to conserve energy. Weatherization can make a home warmer
in the winter and cooler in the summer. Weatherization may also save
money by reducing energy consumption.
