Energy Assistance

Energy Assistance provides emergency assistance to individuals and families having difficulty paying their energy bills. WCA completes applications and connects applicants to the appropriate energy assistance programs such as the $1 Energy Program.

Eligibility for Emergency Assistance

Eligibility varies based upon individual energy program.

You may qualify for gas utility assistance if you make less than the 200% column for your family size on the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For electric assistance, if you make less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may qualify for assistance.

Download the guidelines and compare your income.
