Energy Assistance

The Energy Assistance Program is designed to assist low-income families with the high costs of home energy. The Program's heating season begins in November and Western Indiana Community Action Agency's Energy Assistance Program provides service to over 5,000 housholds each year. Offices in Clay, Putnam and Vigo counties are open to take applications for assistance from any income-eligible individual or household. In addition to the heating program, the Energy Assistance Program offers a summer program which begins in June. Household income guidelines are based on 150% of the Federal poverty guidelines.
