Energy Assistance Program Says There's Still Time to Sign Up

There’s still time to apply for Energy Assistance!

WHEAP ( Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program) assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1-May 15). The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence. The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household’s size, income, and energy costs. In most cases the energy assistance benefit is paid directly to the household energy supplier.


At this time we will only take phone application by calling 715-634-8934 and ask for Tina Schmock : extension 7434 or Cindy Miller: extension 7474


And just a reminder, please get into a habit of checking your propane tank during the heating season. This is very important due to the fact that vendors do charge extra in emergency deliveries and we cannot help with this. The extra charges will need to be paid on delivery that same day. So please, keep track of your propane tank!
