CEAP provides utility assistance to low income, elderly and / or disabled households that are most vulnerable to the high cost of energy for home heating and cooling.
CEAP also provides utility assistance during severe weather or household crisis, and addresses the needs of the household in developing goals for energy self-sufficiency through case management, education and a co-payment utility plan.
Households at or below 125 percent of the federal poverty guidelines and who provide documented need at the time of application are eligible for CEAP.
Priority is given to extremely low to very low income households, the elderly, the disabled, families with small children, then households with the highest energy cost and lowest income.
CEAP is not an "entitlement" program, which means individuals must qualify for the assistance.
