Crisis Fuel Assistance

Are you in danger of running out of fuel to heat your home? Have you received a disconnect notice from the utility company? You might qualify for Crisis Fuel Assistance. This program provides help to home owners or renters who pay for heat or who have heat included in their rent. You might also qualify for furnace repair or replacement!

We can help you with a home heating emergency. If you’re eligible, we can help you with:

  • Purchasing the primary source of your heat (oil, natural or propane gas, wood, electric)
  • Avoiding disconnect of electric service
  • Repairing or replacing your furnace if you are a homeowner

Applications are accepted beginning the last Monday in November through the last Friday in April as long as there is funding. Don’t wait until you have run out of fuel to apply! We cannot help you if the fuel has already been delivered or the furnace work already done.

CVOEO addresses fundamental issues of economic, social, environmental, and racial justice and works with people to achieve economic independence.
