CAPIC Fuel Assistance serves residents in Chelsea, Revere or Winthrop. Any household within the income guidelines may be eligible. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) services homeowners and renters (including renters whose heating costs are included in their rent). Eligibility is determined on the combined gross income of all family members over 18.
Services CAPIC provides include:
- Aid with paying utility bills.
- Free electrical assessments.
- The opportunity to enact energy conservation measures in your home and more.
- This year, with ARPA funding from the State, those who qualified under LIHEAP will also be eligible for assistance with their water bills. More information is available at https://www.acf.hhs.gov/ocs/programs/lihwap
Any interested resident may apply by calling 617-884-6130 or online at http://www.capicinc.org/Eng/E_FuelAssistance.html.
