the keep wisconsin warm/cool fund
keeps the heat and power on for thousands of wisconsin families in crisis

 

 

In close collaboration with Wisconsin Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR) we are working together to bring the upcoming programs and benefits to so many low and fixed-income households struggling to pay for record increases in energy costs. We are anticipating an early start for those on fixed incomes during September. For all other non-elderly fixed-income households we are planning on accepting applications no later than October 1. Our staff will begin scheduling in-person applications or establish October dates for on-demand or online applications for Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) assistance. Should there be any changes that provide for non-fixed income households prior to October 1 we will continue to reach out to those in need.

From now through September 30 the 2021-2022 income guidelines are required. For the upcoming WHEAP for 2023 the new gross income requirements per household will apply. The 2022-2023 gross income guidelines have increased so many who were slightly above the previous guidelines may now apply.
