The Energy Assistance Program is here to help families in need with the high cost of home energy burden. Almost 5,000 people per year receive help with high energy bills through Community Action of Southern Indiana’s Energy Assistance Program (EAP). Households with incomes of 150% of the Federal Poverty Guideline, or less, may receive benefits to help relieve an energy burden. The Program will respond promptly to eligible households with a heating emergency. We receive a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services and it’s administered by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) to be used specifically to help low-income families with their heating bills. Applicants will need to verify income, have an active utilities account, show proof of residence, and have a valid social security number.
