Fuel Assistance (also known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) helps eligible households challenged by the high cost of home heating fuel pay a portion of their winter heating bills. This program provides assistance through a fixed benefit amount for the cost of the primary source of heat, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Oil
  • Electricity
  • Natural Gas
  • Propane
  • Kerosene
  • Wood
  • Wood Pellets
  • Coal

Established in 1972, VOC has been providing fuel assistance to families in all communities in Hampden County, except Springfield, for many years.
