How It Works

The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) helps Connecticut residents afford to heat their homes. Applications for CEAP typically take 30-45 minutes. Basic benefits towards your heating bill range between $410 and $1,015 depending on your income level, household size and whether there is a vulnerable member in the household. These benefits are usually paid directly to your utility company or fuel supplier. Households that heat with deliverable fuels like oil or propane may be eligible for additional fuel deliveries.


CEAP recipients may also be eligible for matching payment plans, protection from shut-offs, and replacement and/or repairs for
heating equipment and water heater(s).

The program is administered by Connecticut’s Department of Social Services in partnership with local Community Action Agencies (CAAs) throughout the state.
