Energy Assistance Program

The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) is a federal program that can help you keep your utilities on during the winter. Indiana’s EAP assists you in paying for your energy bills by providing a one-time benefit assistance payment. You don’t need to have fallen behind on your heating or electric bills to qualify. These benefits are paid directly to the utility vendor to help cover your heating and electric costs. If you don’t have utility bills because your utilities are included in rent, you may still qualify for EAP.

You may be eligible for energy assistance if you make less than the income limits in the graphic below. 

We encourage all UDWI members to contact their local energy assistance offices to see if they qualify for assistance, especially those with significant past due balances.

In most cases, the income guidelines, how to apply, as well as many other details on other services and programs can be found on the website of your local energy assistance office.
