Fuel Assistance Is Available
While we continue to do all we can to manage your heating oil costs, we recognize current fuel costs will be a burden for lower-income families and those facing financial difficulties. Connecticut’s Operation Fuel may be able to help. Operation Fuel provides emergency utility and energy assistance. According to their website, you’ll need to provide proof of income for the last four weeks and the name of your fuel vendor.
According to their site, “Operation Fuel serves households whose income does not exceed 75% of the State Median Income Guidelines, which include, but are not limited to, the elderly, disabled, working families, or individuals facing a financial crisis.”
You can apply online here. You can also meet with someone in person or call 2-1-1 for assistance.
