Energy Assistance Program Application Now Open

Could you use some help with your energy or heating bill? You may qualify to receive federal funding to help pay some of your bills this winter! The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) is a federally funded program to help Indiana residents pay their utility bills and prevent utility shut offs.

Households that earn less than 60% of the state median income (60 SMI) may qualify to receive this benefit. The online application is open from October 2, 2023 to May 20, 2024. Qualified households will be protected by the energy moratorium, which prevents their heat and energy utilities from being shut off in the winter months.

Contact your local service provider or visit to EAP.ihcda.in.gov to learn more!
