Help for Heating Homes
Multi-Service Center's Energy Assistance Program helps households meet the financial challenges of increasing heat and light bills. We can help with bills for: Electricity, Gas, Propane, Wood and Oil. Payments are made directly to service providers on behalf of households. Level of assistance depends on type of housing, income, household size and home energy usage.
In addition, some households may qualify for assistance with their water bills because of a partnership with Lakehaven Water District.9,790 households, representing 30,577 people, got help through MSC's program last year.
