   Energy Assistance (2 types):
Residents may apply and receive financial assistance through Community Renewal Team (CRT), assistance is available for the client’s primary source of heat when they meet income and asset eligibility guidelines. Energy Assistance appointments are generally available from August through May depending on your heating source. Please contact CRT at 860-560-5800 to set up an appointment.
Operation Fuel provides a one-time grant of up to $500.00 to assist families with their energy bills. Operation Fuel is energy blind, meaning they assist with all energy types – oil, electric, natural gas, kerosene, wood, propane, pellets, and other energy sources. If your grant is being applied to an electric or gas utility bill, Operation Fuel’s grant can be used to prevent a shutoff or restore utility service. Operation Fuel also has funding for water assistance grants for eligible MDC customers. Operation Fuel has gone to an online application process; please visit to apply. If you need additional help with the online process please call 860-258-2799.
For emergency appointments/shut-offs please contact Human Services at 860-258-2799.
