Energy Assistance Program

Energy  Assistance Program

Applications are currently being accepted for the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), which helps low-income households pay their primary heat source bills. Energy payments are determined by family size and gross income, and by whether a household is classified as “vulnerable”. Vulnerable households have a member who is under age 6, who is age 60+, or who is any age and disabled
