If you are about to run out of fuel or your electricity is at risk of being cut off, contact YCCAC. The Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP) provides emergency financial assistance for a heating crisis. If you are a homeowner or renter, we may be able to help pay for fuel or for electricity if it is required for your home’s heating system to operate.
ECIP’s emergency utility assistance for home heating systems is available once per season from November 1 through March 30 to LIHEAP-qualified households.
To be eligible for ECIP, you must:
- Have a current, pre-approved LIHEAP application
- Have less than 1/8 of a tank of fuel, 25% or less in a propane tank, or 3-days or less supply for other types of delivered home energy
- Have exhausted all payment options with your electric company
