Home Energy Assistance Program

Save Energy with the Home Energy Assistance Program

The Home Energy Assistance (HEA) Program serves New Hampshire’s income-eligible homeowners and renters to help reduce their energy costs, optimize their homes’ energy performance and make their homes safer, healthier and more comfortable.

The program covers 100% of the cost to weatherize the homes of income-eligible homeowners and renters and replace inefficient equipment. Eligibility is determined by total household income and the number of household members.

Reach out to the Community Action Agency (CAA) in your county and ask about getting qualified for the HEA program.

Energy Assistance

Of all U.S. households, 25% (30.6 million) spend more than 6% of their income on energy bills.

13% of U.S. households spend more than 10% of their income in energy bills, facing a severe energy burden.

The NHSaves utility partners’ goal is to help residents be more energy efficient. However, we know that is still not enough. The statewide Electric Assistance Program (EAP) began on October 1, 2002. This initiative provides qualifying customers with discounts on their monthly electric and gas bills.

Reach out to the Community Action Agency (CAA) in your county to learn more.
