Heat, Energy & Fuel

If you are having a hard time paying for heat or electricity, you are not alone. It’s not an uncommon problem for many families in York County. That’s why YCCAC offers a wide range of fuel and energy assistance programs so you can be warm, safe, healthy, and secure in your home. And, our weatherization services can even help you save money!

Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a program that provides a fixed amount of funding to Maine each year from the federal government. Community Action Agencies, including York County Community Action, stopped taking applications for the program in March 2024. MaineHousing expects will make every effort to provide assistance to eligible applicants who submit a completed application by the deadline, but cannot guarantee that assistance will be available.


We invite bids from interested contractors to provide weatherization services for homes of income-eligible residents throughout York County. Our Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) provides services to improve the energy efficiency of single-family homes, mobile homes and 2-4 unit dwellings. All successful bidders will be required to comply with MaineHousing certification requirements. The Invitation to Bid package can be obtained by contacting Louise Pridham (207) 459-2893.
