Energy Assistance

The EA Program is a seasonal program to assists low-income households in meeting their immediate home energy needs. To be eligible, households must have a heating or cooling expense and gross monthly income may not exceed 130 percent of the federal poverty level. Applications for fuel, crisis, and cooling assistance are accepted at the Louisa Department of Human Services. The EA Program consists of four components:
  • Fuel Assistance: This primarily provides assistance with purchasing home heating fuel.
  • Crisis Assistance: This is intended to meet a household's emergency heating need. Assistance offered includes one-time only heat security deposit, portable heater for temporary use, purchase of home heating fuel, payment of heat utility bill, payment for emergency shelter, and/or heating equipment repair/purchase.
  • Cooling Assistance: This provides purchase or repair of cooling equipment and/or payment for electricity to operate cooling equipment.
  • Weatherization Assistance: This applies air infiltration measures to the housing structure. The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) administer this component.

Call our agency at (540) 967-1320 for more information about income eligibility and the application process.
