Special Energy Assistance Benefit

Fuel Assistance (Seasonal)


Fuel Assistance IconHelps pay part of your home heating bills — whether you own your home or rent, pay for heat directly or as part of rent.

Who Is Eligible

You may be eligible if your gross household income is equal to or less than 185% of the federal poverty level based on household size.

Some people in your home may not be part of your fuel household (e.g., a caretaker or roomer). We won't count their incomes when we determine if you are eligible. But you'll need to list them on the application form.
