This year, Community Action performed energy audits and provided conservation measures such as insulation, caulking, and weatherstripping for over 1,000 homes.
Community Action's Energy Programs are committed to helping community members with low income in Franklin and Hampshire Counties cover their energy costs. Our programs work to reduce energy consumption, improve heating systems, and help pay a portion of fuel and utility bills.
Our largest program, Fuel Assistance, helps our neighbors with low incomes pay a portion of their home heating costs. The program is available to both homeowners and renters, and covers the primary source of heat. Program eligibility and payment amounts are determined by family size and gross annual household income. Payments are not intended to cover the entire cost of annual home heating, but can alleviate some of the financial burden.
Fuel Assistance participants are also eligible to receive discounts on their home phone and electric bills and may choose to enroll in our Heating System Repair Program, Weatherization Program, or Electric Efficiency Program.
