The Cheshire Youth and Social Services Department will begin processing applications for the Connecticut Energy Assistance program on September 12, 2011. The Energy Assistance program provides financial assistance to income eligible households in paying for a portion of their heating cost during the winter months.
Program eligibility is based on income, liquid assets, and family size. Applicants must provide documentation of current income and assets of all family members in order to apply for assistance. Documentation of assets include most recent checking, savings, credit union statements, stocks, bonds, CDs, IRAs, and other accounts. Applicant must provide current primary heating source bill.
All heat sources are considered, including oil, propane, electricity, gas, and wood. Renters who have their heat included in their rent must provide rent receipts and copy of lease. Applications will be taken by appointment only. Contact Cheshire Youth & Social Services at 203-271-6690.
