The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) is a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1 – May 15). The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence. Households may qualify for Energy Assistance if heating costs are paid directly to an active fuel or utility account or whose heating costs are included in their rent. Those who make separate payment to their landlord for heat may also qualify. Furnace repair and/or replacement is also available to homeowners.
Assistance is determined based on energy costs, household size, income and dwelling type, etc.
Call (920)294-4070 and ask for Energy Assistance to apply.
