Washington County assistance programs

Funds for energy bills and Weatherization programs

The local community action agency, Five County Association of Governments CAP, offers both the Home Energy Assistance Target (HEAT) and weatherization program.

The HEAT program is not a welfare program. Rather the program is a federally funded Energy Bill Assistance Program that is administered by the State of Utah, and it provides money for paying heating bill during the cold winter months.

The other option, weatherization, is the U.S. Department of Energy’s way to help people save on their utility and heating bills. The Weatherization Assistance program is the nation’s core program for delivering free energy efficiency and conservation services to low income households throughout the area. Some of the free improvements of the program may include replacement of broken windows, the installation of walls, attic, or floor insulation, and much more.
