There are federal and local programs available to help households that need assistance with electric bills.


The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is a Federally funded program that helps eligible households pay a portion of their home energy costs by providing a one-time per year benefit.  The application period for 2024 begins December 18, 2023.  Applications must be completed by the close of business on March 29, 2024.


DCF has compiled an informal list of community providers where clients have reported receiving assistance in the past. These providers are not part of DCF but may be able to provide additional services if still in operation or if funding is available.
