Home Energy Benefits

The Wisconsin Home Energy Plus Program (WHEAP) provides benefits for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations. Most types of fuel are eligible to receive assistance. Whether you use wood, propane, natural gas, electricity, or fuel oil to heat your home, energy assistance is available if you qualify. Benefits are not intended to cover the entire cost of your home energy needs.

Please visit the Wisconsin Home Energy Plus Programs or Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources online for further information.
