Emergency services...
If you do not have heat, or if you have received a disconnect notice from your heating fuel dealer, or if you are nearly out of heating fuel and do not have any way to pay for more, you may be eligible for emergency assistance. The Crisis Assistance program provides emergency services. If you think you need emergency heating services, call 262-741-3337 or 800-365-1587.

Regular services
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 home.

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.

For information on eligibility for any Energy Assistance program, or to learn how to apply for services, call 262-741-3337 or toll free 800-365-1587 or TTY 262-741-3255.
