Connecticut Energy Assistance Program
The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program helps households pay for primary heating bills. If the household’s primary heating costs are included in your rent, you may also apply for assistance.
For households with incomes up to sixty percent of the state median income
For households with incomes up to 150% of the federal poverty guidelines
Note: Any household in which all household members are participating in one or more of the following Department of Social Services programs are automatically considered income eligible for winter heating assistance benefits, but must meet all other eligibility requirements to receive benefits: Temporary Family Assistance, State Supplement to the Aged, Blind and Disabled, Refugee Cash Assistance Program. Mixed-income households (those receiving income from both DSS and non-DSS sources) are considered income-eligible for winter heating assistance benefits if the combined household annual gross income, including DSS cash benefits, remains within income guidelines.
