Fuel Assistance can help to pay part of your home heating bills. You might be eligible for fuel assistance whether you:
- Own your home or rent;
- Pay for your heat directly or it's included in your rent;
- Rent a room in someone else's home; or
- Live in public, subsidized, or Section 8 housing AND your rent includes the cost of heat
To determine your eligibility, the Fuel Assistance Office will consider both your household's income and resources.

The best way to find out if you are eligible for assistance is to apply
You can apply up until the last day of February; however, the best time to apply is between July 15 and August 31. If you apply after August 31, you may get a smaller benefit and you will get it later. All applications received after the last day of February will be denied, without exception.
For more information, please call the Fuel Assistance Office in Waterbury at 1-800-479-6151.
