How to Apply for Energy Assistance in Milwaukee
The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) provides energy assistance to more than 200,000 Wisconsin families on an annual basis.
According to WE Energies, qualification is not based on whether someone is behind on their energy bills. Instead, the benefit amount is determined by a number of factors, including household size, income level and energy costs. A Wisconsin family of four earning less than $46,700 a year may be eligible for assistance.
Wisconsin residents can call 866-432-8947 or visit the Home Energy Plus website for more information.
