  • One-person - $32,514.56 yearly gross income.    Two-persons  -  $42,519.04  yearly gross income
  • Asset limits do apply.
  • Program helps with cost of oil/propane deliveries made beginning November 15th, 2014.
Oil- heat households are advised to complete an application now in order to be approved early in the heating season.  Electric and natural gas heated households may also apply at any time before April 30, 2015.

Operation Fuel Program – helps avoid utility disconnection

Operation Fuel is now partnering with Brookfield Social Services to ensure that eligible households have assistance with maintaining basic utility service.  ~Income guidelines are the same as noted above.

Electric or gas utility clients must:
  • have a shut-off notice
  • or no utility service
  • or need assistance with making a required payment in order to maintain a payment arrangement
  • or have a past due balance of 30 days or more.~
Each households may qualify only once every 12 months, but may be eligible for this program even if they received a grant for their primary heat through the CEAP/CHAP program.     
                          
Applications will be taken until Nov. 7th, 2014 – unless funds are depleted sooner.
