                        Winter Heating Program (CEAP)

Applications for the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) for the 2023-2024 season begin on September 1, 2023

The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) helps Connecticut residents afford to heat their homes. Basic benefits towards your heating bill (both deliverable fuel & utility households) range between $180 to $530 depending on your income level, household size and whether there is a vulnerable member in the household. These benefits are paid directly to your utility company or fuel supplier. Households that heat with deliverable fuels like oil or propane may be eligible for an additional crisis assistance benefit. CEAP recipients who have electric as their primary heating source may also be eligible for matching payment plans and protection from shut-offs. 

This is a winter heating assistance program that is administered by Connecticut’s Department of Social Services in partnership with local Community Action Agencies (CAAs) throughout the state and local Town Social Services offices.
