REGION- Applications for energy assistance for the 2013-2014 heating season are now being accepted by the Access Community Action Agency. Program eligibility is determined by total household gross income and is available for all heated households using oil, kerosene, propane, wood, coal, electric, or natural gas heat except motor homes and campers. Residents of Windham and Tolland counties can contact Access in Willimantic at 860-450-7400 or in Danielson at 860-412-1600 to make an appointment to determine eligibility and to find out what documentation they will need to bring to their appointments. Appointments are currently available during the agency’s normal business hours of 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Households that have received energy assistance in the past must reapply and bring in updated documentation to be eligible for the new heating season. Each applicant must bring in copies of their documentation and if there is missing documentation they will be rescheduled. Funding for this program is provided by the Connecticut Department of Social Services.
