Low-income households may qualify for enrollment in the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program. Wisconsin Public Service Communications Specialist Matt Cullen urges customers to look into the service.
WHEAP provides help in many ways including aid to pay your heating bill, your electric bill, and assistance in replacing a furnace or boiler that breaks down between October 1st and May 15th. Eligibility is determined using a three-month average of household income. A family of four qualifies for assistance if total income is below $13,785 for that time period.
