Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP)

The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) provides assistance for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations. Operating with federal and state funding, the program provides assistance to approximately 230,000 Wisconsin households annually.

Most types of fuel are eligible to receive assistance. Whether you use wood, propane, natural gas, electricity, or fuel oil to heat your home, energy assistance is available if you qualify.


The Heat for Heroes Campaign is uniquely designed to avert life-threatening, energy-related emergencies by helping struggling Veterans keep their heat and power on; while also providing adequate resource connections with other State, County, and Veteran services for optimal, long-term household stability.
