Energy Assistance & Water Assistance

We provide assistance with winter fuel bills and water/wastewater bills for households in Brown, Monroe, Morgan and Owen counties.

The application period for the 2021-2022 Energy Assistance Program year has closed. There is no longer a Summer Cool program. If you find yourself in a utility crisis over the summer please call 211 or your local trustee for assistance.

The 2022/2023 Energy Assistance Program and Water Assistance Program will begin on November 1st. Follow along on this website or our Facebook page for updates on the program as they become available. For anyone who was on our program last year, you will receive an application packet in the mail when it becomes available. If you have moved since you last applied, please be sure to complete a Change of Address form and submit it so that we have the current information on record.

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.
