Winter Energy Assistance is available through the Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri. Those seeking assistance MUST fill out a new application, every winter season, even if you have received this service before.
Winter assistance begins processing payments November 1st for the elderly or disabled and December 1st for all other households. No funds will be available for utility assistance prior to those dates.
Applicants will need to provide a variety of information, including social security numbers for every member of your household, and they need to be fully and legibly written out on the application. To apply, you MUST fall at or below 135% of federal poverty income guidelines.
Primary AND secondary heating sources MUST be listed on the application and a bill included for EACH. Electricity must be listed as your secondary heating source if you use ANY OTHER HEATING SOURCE AT ALL (propane, wood, natural gas, etc).
Applications are processed in the order they are received (with the exception of crisis cases).
