Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP)

WHEAP provides assistance for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations. It is a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1-May 15). The funding pays a portion of the costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire heating or non-heating (electric) costs in a residence. The amount of the heating assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household’s size, income, and heating costs. For more information visit homeenergyplus.wi.gov and click on the program descriptions.
