Energy Services provides financial assistance for fuel bills for income-eligible people. Heating Assistance is a one-time benefit payment during each heating season (October 1-May 15). It is intended to help pay a portion of clients' heating costs; it is not intended to cover the entire annual cost of home heating. In addition, this office administers funds to help eligible residents pay their electric bills, even if electricity is not their primary source for heat. Crisis assitance is also available.
