CEAP, The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program, is designed to offset winter heating costs for income/asset eligible households in Windham and Tolland counties. Program eligibility is determined by total household gross income and is available for all heated households using oil, kerosene, propane, wood, pellets, coal, electric, or natural gas heat. Residents of Windham and Tolland counties can contact Access in Willimantic at 860-450-7400 or in Danielson at 860-412-1600 to make a phone appointment and provide a working telephone number in order for an Intake Tech to call back.
Deliverable-heated households may use benefits starting November 1st and ending May 2nd. Utility-heated households (Eversource Energy, formerly CL&P and YES Yankee Gas) are eligible to participate in the matching payment programs and are protected from utility shut-off from November 1st through May 1st.
Heating System Replacement/Repair is for eligible households of heating systems and associated equipment of single-family owner-occupied dwellings determined to be unsafe or inoperable.
