Wood County Energy Assistance Office will begin taking early-season applications at various locations throughout Wood County starting [September 1].

The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program is available to qualifying households to help maintain utility and heating services.

To qualify for the Energy Assistance Program, household income must be below 60 percent of the Wisconsin State Median Income. Gross income for the prior three months is used to determine eligibility, and there is no asset limit. Eligible households will receive a one-time heating season payment to help pay heat and/or electric costs.

Wood County will be accepting Energy Assistance applications at Outreach Sites only. Applicants will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. No appointments will be scheduled for the regular-season applications during this time.
