Citizens Energy is Now Taking Applications!

If you are an individual, family, or household, you can fill out an application with them now, through February 29 2008. If you are a Native American tribal member, your assistance will be handled through your tribe. You can apply over the phone or on line: this is a program that has operated before and many low income Mainers have benefitted. Here's what they say about their program for individuals and families.

From the Citizens Energy web page:
"Beginning December 3, 2007, families that need heating assistance can call the Citizens Energy Oil Heat Program's toll free hotline, 1-877-JOE-4OIL (1-877-563-4645). or apply online to complete an application. Citizens will notify households/families via mail on their application status. Qualified families will receive a one-time delivery of up to 100 gallons of heating oil. To receive a delivery during the 2007–2008 winter season, Citizens Energy must receive all applications and requests for processing by February 29, 2008.

Apply Online

This year we are proud to announce that families can apply directly online. We encourage families who can, to use this new feature for fast and efficient program enrollment.
