Community Advocates - Energy Assistance

Community Advocates partners with Milwaukee County and the State of Wisconsin to provide assistance for heating costs, electricity costs, and energy crisis situations. The assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1-May 15). The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence. The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household’s size, income, and energy costs. In most cases the energy assistance benefit is paid directly to the household energy supplier.
