Connecticut residents struggling to pay their utility bills can apply for home heating assistance at their local CAA. Community Action Agencies are the only nonprofit agencies administering the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which provides home heating assistance to the state’s most vulnerable residents. In Connecticut this program is called the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) and is housed under the Department of Social Services. The state’s Community Action Agencies administer the program locally in all 169 cities and towns. Click here to read the full press release and find your local CAA!
