The Warmth Program is intended to supplement Vermont’s Seasonal and Crisis Fuel Assistance services.

You are eligible if:

  • You are within 5-7 days of running out of bulk fuel
  • You are in danger of having your utility service disconnected

Community Action staff will work with you to examine your monthly income and expenses, available resources, and capacity to make realistic repayment arrangements (for past-due metered services) or to cover part of the cost of a delivery of bulk fuel. We also check if you're eligible for other supportive programs, such as the Vermont state Seasonal Fuel Assistance Program, 3SquaresVT, and weatherization services.
