Need help with your heat or electric bill?

You or someone you know may be eligible for help with home heating bills.  

The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) is a federally-funded program that helps eligible households pay a portion of their home heating bills. The amount of heating assistance benefit depends on the household's size, income, and heating costs.  

A few notes about the WHEAP program:  
  • It is a one-time year benefit payment.
  • Benefits are normally available between October 1st and May 15th.
  • The benefit is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating your home.
  • Benefits are not required to be paid back.
  • Benefits are paid directly to the fuel supplier.
  • It is important to make regular payments on your utility bill, as benefits may be based on your payment history.
