Energy Assistance

Energy Assistance Meeting PictureThe South Central Community Action Program provides assistance with summer and winter fuel bills for households in Brown, Monroe, Morgan and Owen counties.

Last winter, SCCAP provided energy assistance to 3,188 households.

The 2018 Energy Assistance Program application period is open to the public as of October 1, 2017. Application materials and instructions are available below. Please note that we are unable to transmit funds to utility vendors or call in pledges to your account until funds are made available in early November. If you are in an energy crisis and need immediate assistance with your bills, please contact your township trustee, or call your local SCCAP office or 211 for referrals to other community resources.

In order to help us serve you better and more efficiently, please be sure to gather all required documentation and turn it in along with a fully completed application packet. Incomplete applications will not be able to be processed until they are completed.

The purpose of the Energy Assistance Program is to help keep members of low-income families safe and healthy, and assist them in achieving energy self-sufficiency and avoiding utility disruptions.  

Participants are encouraged to control energy costs and identify strategies which allow them to pay their future energy bills. Energy conservation education will be available at SCCAP’s offices throughout the winter. Participants will receive information on staying warm while reducing utility costs.
