Online Application


The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is designed to help offset the winter heating costs of Connecticut's lower-income households, specifically those households whose income falls at or below 60 percent of the state's median income. CEAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Block Grant. The Connecticut Department of Social Services administers CEAP in collaboration with its partners, Community Action Agencies across the state.

General information:

Winter heating assistance pays for a household’s primary heating source such as oil, natural gas, electricity, propane, kerosene, coal, wood, and wood pellets on behalf of eligible households. The amount of heat assistance may not be sufficient to cover a household’s entire winter heating cost.

Homeowners and renters may apply.

Households eligible for the winter heating program may also be eligible to receive weatherization assistance. This can help conserve energy and lower heating bills.

The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program is administered by the Department of Social Services and coordinated by regional Community Action Agencies in cooperation with municipal and other non-profit human service agencies.
