Fuel Assistance

Winter is nearing, and our new page, Law About Winter Heating, contains links to a number of source of information about fuel assistance. Fuel Assistance (LIHEAP): An Overview is produced by an independent not-for-profit organization, and provides the clearest explanation of fuel assistance in a question and answer format. Areas include eligibility, benefits, application procedure, and how the benefit works. Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is the official site of the program, and includes everything you need to know about fuel assistance, including forms, eligibility guidelines and procedures. Winter Heating Help, from the Mass. Office of Consumer Affairs, offers links to fuel assistance information, but also the average weekly price of heating oil and natural gas, energy saving tips and links, information on fuel assistance programs, energy star programs and more. Law About Winter Heating also includes links to individual assistance programs, and regulations on heat in the workplace and in residences.
