You can apply online here.

You can apply via email by filling out this form and sending it in to your Community Action Agency (CAA).

You can apply by mail by printing out the same form and sending it in to your local CAA.

You can also schedule an in-person appointment over the phone or walking-in to your local CAA. Or you can even apply over the phone by calling in and requesting assistance.

This link is to the Connecticut Energy Assistance website and it can provide you with all of the information above, CAA offices and contact info for your area, as well as what forms you may need to have with your application. Hope this helps.

Am I missing something? The income eligibility on the CT Website shows the following:

Household Size 1 / $39,761 up to Household Size 8 / $105,521

Nothing about $125,000. And when I look at the press release, it just says the budget is getting an additional $30MM but doesn't say the income limits are changing.

Please point me in the right direction!

That’s what I was looking at. I just wasn’t sure if it was that site or operation fuel.

There is a link in there to apply online. LIHEAP is a state program, so applying through the ".gov" site is appropriate.

(There are other programs as well, if you're trying to figure out what you qualify for, check out )

Operation fuel is independent from Heating Assistance. Apply for heating assistance, then if you have additional needs, contact them.

Thanks. You can’t do it online?

It’s now done online. Two links are on this post. You replied to one of them. I’ll star your reply so you know which one but both the links on this thread will do.

They have you interview in person. I believe they did drop off during the pandemic.

They still have drop off and online applications, but they take full advantage of the “45 business days to process the applications” if you apply this way.

Call community action agency in new haven or download the application and send in any proof required

Does anyone know if the MHA from the VA for usage of GI bill counts towards these income limits?

Since it's technically an allowance, and not pay it doesn't count towards many income limits.

What town do you live in and what do you heat with? I process these applications and do accounts payable for this program. It all depends on where you live, but you can go online and complete the application and it’ll send it to your CAA based on your zip code. Make sure you upload the necessary documents and input socials. If you’re missing this info, your application will definitely be held up.

ETA : the online application is very convenient if completed correctly, but most agencies are backed up by at least 100 apps. This season has been absolutely crazy.

I live in Enfield and heat with Eversource gas. Do you know the new income limit for a family of 2?
