Energy Assistance


State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

The application period for the 2022-2023 winter season of the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) will open on Thursday, September 1st. As colder days approach, this program supports vulnerable Connecticut residents – both homeowners and renters – with the costs of heating their homes.

Applying is simple, and there are several ways to apply:

Online at:

Your local community action agency and request assistance applying, or schedule an in-person appointment –

Download and complete the CEAP application, and mail the completed application with the required documents to your local community action agency.

Benefits are based on your household’s income and number of family members. Benefits are available for households with incomes up to 60% of the state median income, which equates to roughly $76,400 for a family of four.

Typically, benefits are usually paid directly to the utility company or fuel supplier. Households that heat with deliverable fuels like oil or propane may be eligible for multiple free tank fills.

Applications for the 2022-2023 winter season must be received by May 31, 2023.

If you’d like more information, call 2-1-1

As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email me at

Joseph P. Gresko
