Due to high demand and limited available funding THAW is not accepting new energy assistance applications at this time.

Some of THAW’s partner agencies have energy assistance funds available. To apply for those funds you must schedule an agency appointment. To find an agency near you use the online agency locator or call 1-800-866-THAW (8429) to be connected to our agency referral line.

We also recommend you contact your utility provider or United Way 2-1-1 to ask about other resources that may be available.
