Energy Assistance Program (EAP)

9.2.22 Announcement

Our Energy team is diligently working to process a large backlog of applications and will no longer be able to accept new applications for the time being. This is a temporary pause on the services we offer to allow our team to work through those applications who haven't received assistance yet this year. We're making slow progress in getting pledges paid out, but with the workload and staffing currently in place are stretched thin.

 

At this time we will only be processing new applications that are considered critical emergencies.

 

Current criteria to be considered for critical emergencies:

  • A 24 hour shut off or have been shut off     OR

  • A shutoff notice of anytime frame AND you have one of the following situations

    • A medical dependency requiring electricity/energy 

      • This can include

        • Oxygen tanks/breathing machines

        • Electric wheelchairs

        • Any medical device that would be a life or death situation

    • Children under the age of 6 months

Each application accepted will be handled at a case-by-case basis until further notice.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
