Assistance for Electric Heat Customers in Need
October 27, 2017
If you live in our service area and your dwelling depends on electric heat and you are experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for heating assistance.
It is important to understand that this program is limited to residents who get their electric service from SHELD and whose dwellings rely on electric heat; homes outside SHELD's service area or those which are heated by gas or oil are not eligible.
Senior citizens can learn about available assistance from the South Hadley Council on Aging; call them at 413-538-5042.
SHELD's partner in the heating assistance program is the Franklin Community Action Commission. You can visit their website to learn more about the applications process.
New applications are being accepted through April 30, 2018.
If you or someone you know may be in need and qualifies for this assistance, please know SHELD is here to help as best we can!
