WCAC’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) fuel assistance and Energy Efficiency programs assist homeowners and renters with home heating bills, past due balances on utility bills, and in some cases receiving forgiveness credit and making monthly payments. Energy efficient weatherization, heating system repair and upgrades can help to stretch energy dollars.
The LIHEAP program provides financial assistance by paying fuel vendors directly for income-eligible households including individuals, families, single or multi-family homes, owners or renters.
Energy managers provide detailed reviews of electric usage and conservation information offering immediate energy savings. Program provides little to no-cost upgrades or repairs for refrigerators, light bulbs, and light fixtures for both homeowners and renters.
