The subsidy portion of the program is intended to provide help to anyone who qualifies and for people who need assistance with paying heating bills and costs.

    If you apply and are accepted into the program, the money and or grants you will receive will be sent directly to the consumer’s utility or gas company. The money is not sent to the applicant.
